Happenings at the Resort...June 2016
Greetings from Port Ludlow -

What in the world does "June gloom" mean?  We sure didn't see it on Memorial Day in Port Ludlow - and the forecast for the next ten days is sunshine and more sunshine!  AND Summer Solstice is upon us - June 20th - now THAT is a day to celebrate!

Half way through 2016 and we are delighted about several happenings here:

The Farmer's Market is open - and so is the new venue at Finnriver Orchard and Cidery. 
The Chimacum High School golf team, coached by our Head Pro Darren Posey, came in third in the state!  How about that?!
The veranda is open and all we can say is, bring the suntan lotion! 
Our "knitters" are back - and they have an open invitation to the "Marketplace" - come on by and stock up - or just explore the beautiful products available.
You won't want to miss the movie night in Port Ludlow - pretty cool idea of boating in - or if you are a land-lubber or is it land-lover, that option is going to be available too. The movie is "UP" and rumor has it that a hot air balloon will be available for rides too.  (Now, wind, please stay away that evening!)
And I can hardly wait to paddle around the bay this month - and make my own ice cream! Check out the cool contraption that allows you to add this to your boat (kayak), paddle around the bay, and wha-la, when you return, you have ice cream!  We will test it this weekend and hope you'll try it out over the summer as well.......make plans with the Marina store directly.
THIS is why we live here - so, see you around the Inn very soon!

P.S. What is this? First correct response will win lunch for two on July 4th at the Potlatch.
The winner from last month was Jamie Navone who won two lunches for the 4th of July Potlatch Celebration.
We are excited to announce NEW carts at the golf course equipped with GPS technology.

Test out the new GPS carts with our "Swing into Summer" special, 18-holes of golf for two with GPS cart for $99 or single rate for $59. "Swing into Summer" is valid from today through June 30th.

Last month we welcomed 13 new members to the Port Ludlow Golf Club. Interested in joining? Find our more about membership.
It is the season to explore on the water. Explore Ludlow Bay in a kayak or stand-up paddle board, available for rent at the Marina. 

Have you heard of tow-behind ice cream makers? (This is a test...you HAVE if you read every word to this point!) As you paddle your kayak around the bay, the tow-behind ice cream maker blends your ice cream for you and once you've finished your kayak excursion celebrate with your homemade ice cream! The tow-behind ice cream makers and ingredients are available in the Marina Store.

And don't forget to save the date for the Beach and Boat-In Movie Night! On Thursday, August 25th enjoy the Disney's "UP" from the comfort of your boat. Anchor our to watch the movie from a 50' screen. 
Savor Summer with us. We have two wine dinners coming up - Woodward Canyon on June 10th and Camaraderie Cellars on July 7th. In addition to the wine dinners, we're honoring Independence Day with the 2nd annual Totem Pole Potlatch. And, celebrate the summer harvest with the Farm Dinner at Finnriver Orchard on August 11th.
