Posts Tagged ‘Patriots Day’
This weekend was very odd, strange weather and a lot of guests (it is only April!). Friday started out nice and sunny, Saturday the rain came and then it snowed, Sunday it rained. Camden is a great sea coast town and is very pleasant when the sun is out. You can hike, walk around, or just sit by the water. When the weather is odd, it is nice to have a beautiful Inn room to sit by the fire and read a book. If it is nice out, we definitely have more interest in overnight guests, business picks up. When it is going to rain business is very slow. That’s why when we had a lot of guests this weekend, I was very confused. The weather was not great but the phone would not stop ringing. This weekend we had so many that I questioned a guest and said, “Why are you here?” He said it is Patriot’s Day. Having grown up in New York, I had not been familiar with Patriot’s Day. Patriot’s Day is not on my radar as a travel weekend. Some businesses actually give a paid holiday. It is acknowledged in Massachusets, Maine and Wisconsin.

We even had a lovely newly wed couple celebrating their honeymoon. (That is the fourth honeymooning couple we have had for so far this year).
