The fisher persons with their boats have been coming and going and we are seeing nice catches for them, but is summer REALLY here? At last? We sure waited for it a long time this year. We were happy to host our first Central Minnesota Watercolorists Retreat this spring. It was awesome and inspiring to watch the artists at work. They created many beautiful works of art while here and actually gave us a large one which we will be putting on display for our many guests to see.
How is your summer going so far? Do you have vacation plans? If they include the north woods (or any woods for that matter) please take along some good insect repellent and keep an eye out for ticks on everyone. Those little monsters are creating more problems every year - and the health problems they create can be really serious.
If you're having a Staycation (staying at or near home) consider Riverside Inn or Riverside Resort for a week or a few days - it's great to get away. You will enjoy our pool and hot tub. Looking for something for the kids to do to burn off some extra energy? How about bringing them to the pool here - we are open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. for public swimming (it's a good idea to give us a call and see how busy the pool is, since we also do pool parties). Stop in and say hello and take a tour of our newly re-decorated theme rooms. We have just completed the Game Room, Liberty Lounge and we are almost done on the Pilot's Lounge. If you haven't seen the Jaws Room, India Tiger Hunt or the School Room - you should stop by. Have a great summer!
