Summer is finally here! We have directions for a perfect summer day at the beach, and an update on the meadow wildlife.
DIRECTIONS FOR A PERFECT SUMMER DAY AT THE BEACH:
Step 1: Get up early for a walk and swim, or a little fishing
Step 2: Find some seashells to take home
Step 3: Head over to the Beach Cafe for all-you-can-eat pancakes or a Yummy Sandwich.
Step 4: Stake out a place on the beach
Step 5: Watch the show! Ultralight lands and takes off on the beach!

Step 6: Head out for supper at the Tide Tables in Cortez.
Step 7: Take a family photo on the beach.
Step 8: Say goodnight to the sun.
In addition to our box turtle that you’ve met before…
We now have a native Island Hare (he moves pretty quick, hard to photograph):
And a green hummingbird who hangs out by the laundry shed and flame vine flowers.
…and a non-native iguana was seen on the patios and in the flame vine in April. He is gone now (absolutely, positively, totally gone). He moved on down the beach somewhere. Whew!
Make your summer reservations soon- we are filling up fast!
