Dear Friends,

We hope that everyone was able to find some time to enjoy this past fourth of July weekend, and celebrate in a way that felt positive, secure and uplifting. Understandably gatherings these days continue to pose challenges of how to make the most of the occasions while acting responsibly for ourselves and one another. It was a pleasure to see so many of our guests at the resort figuring out the coming together of friends and family in a safe and considerate manner, even if it took a bit more effort in the present climate. These moments keep us going and do wonders for our positive state of mind. They allow us to forget the stress for just a minute or two, and realize the vital importance of community and connection. As the world continues to spin, and the majority of the headlines continuing to be heavy these days, it is important to try and appreciate where we are right now. Many of us might be pining for the days of the past, to go back to where we were before, wishing the anxiety of late would simply disappear. This is perfectly understandable to long for such things, but try and stay present and keep your faith that this too shall pass. We may not know when, or how, and the road ahead may twist and turn more than we may like at times, but stay strong. Remember that none of us are guaranteed another second, and try not to take the days for granted. Remember what is important, be thankful for everything you have, in this very minute, and let this give you the strength to carry on. To stay connected. Smiles and kindness still work, they always have and they always will. Take the time to do one positive thing each day for someone else. A thank you note, a message just to say hi, any gentle reminder that you care and acknowledge that we are all in this together. One simple gesture could make all the difference in the world to another person. It may be just what they, and you, need to keep paying the positivity forward.

Here at the resort the days have been filled with everyone moving at different speeds and finding their moments that work best for them. This may be enjoying an early morning paddle board on gentle waters, or making wakes in the afternoon on the wave runners. Midday kayaking, a fishing expedition or laying in the sun on the shallow beach pier. A game of horseshoes, tennis or finding a quiet spot under a tree to catch up with a good book or just grab a few more zees. Find your pace, whatever that may be and own it, make the most of it, keep your spirits high and seize the day. Life shifts and changes at the blink of an eye, so please always remember to cherish your days. 

Thank you for being a part of our family.
