Happenings at the Resort ~ August 2021
Hello Friends of Port Ludlow Resort,
As I settle into summer and look around here in Port Ludlow I think, WOW! This place is pretty amazing. Looking out over the water, past the marina of boats and toward the mountains, I often say, ‘not a bad day at the office.’ Whenever the day feels too busy or too long I can step aside for a moment and understand why I love it here.

Do you know someone who wants to love their job too? Our award winning Resort is a fast-paced customer service environment and has open positions throughout the company. Many of them, with the right attitude, can be filled with little or no experience. We will train. Please refer them to our website at www.portludlowresort.com/careers/
 
I hope all of you have had or will be having a chance to refresh in our surroundings. You can be as busy as you like hiking, boating, kayaking, golfing, practicing golf, strolling on the beach, etc. or you can just breathe in the fresh air, listen to the lapping of the water, and be present in the moment.

Summer season is really heating up!!!
In the Fireside we are receiving some of the greatest products of the year. These two are a favorite combination of mine that you can expect to see nearly every day through the month of August.

Summer Chanterelles
Hand picked by local foragers make an excellent accompaniment
Neah Bay Marble King Salmon
Our Monger picks these fish directly from the boats and brings them to us the same day. Can't get fresher then that.
