Windjammer Schooner Alert

Matt took this shot of the Alert last night as they were out for a sunset sail. This is a 70 foot windjammer that sails out of Cooks dock daily. Many of our guests have enjoyed afternoon sails with them. A young couple, Bethany and Perry are the captains of the boat. Bethany is a "local". Her family owns Sea Escape Cottages just down the road from us. They also have a smaller sailboat, the Tevake, a 31 foot ketch. The Alert was recently certified by the Coast Guard to take up to 28 passengers. This was quite a big undertaking to pass the certification. We congratulate Bethany and Perry and wish them all the best!
Well, September is coming to a close.....we were close to 100% have rooms open tonight through Thursday. October is about 60% full right now. So, if you haven't been to visit, come see us. The foliage is getting prettier day by day! We close for the season on October 27th.  We are also taking reservations for 2014 as well.
Pool closes up this week....sigh. I am not ready for the season to end.
Hope all is well with all of you! Sue
