Our first weekend

Well our first weekend is behind us - and I just want to say, it was a blast! Let me tell you all about it, but first, an introduction. We are the new Innkeepers, Valerie and Eric. And joining us are my parents, Victor and Victoria. We are the new Journey Inn - just as wonderful as the old Journey Inn of course!

After two weeks of frantic unpacking, decorating, landscaping, cooking - we opened to a full house. We had folks from New York, New Zealand, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Ohio. Some were just getting away for a weekend, others on a tour of the east coast, some folks taking a course at the Culinary Institute of America, and two sisters just wanting to spend some time together. And a good friend who wanted to share our first weekend - thanks Liz and Charlie!

What a great weekend it was. The weather was beautiful; the conversation was lively and fun. I do believe a great time was had by all. Our first breakfast was herbed scrambled eggs with roasted asparagus, blueberry muffins, local breakfast sausages, and strawberries with crème fraîche and brown sugar. I will never forget that first meal.

On Saturday, a nice glass of champagne was shared to celebrate the reopening and our new life as innkeepers.

Thanks to all the wonderful guests who helped make it such a memorable weekend.
