Good News about Irene for Rhode Island

The silly old weather people are convinced that Narragansett will be in the path of Hurricane Irene. All those fancy charts mean nothing. I have ensured that we will only get a light sprinkle of rain by cancelling all of our scheduled guests for Sunday and Monday.

We will still be here and open if anyone wants a last minute trip to view the power of the ocean or can't get home to Block Island.

Stay safe and stay dry.

And don't forget your sunscreen on Sunday.

Hip, Hip, Hurrah!! They're Back!!!!!

Narragansett is such a wonderful place that lots of folk visit the area more than once. Blueberry Cove Inn has been fortunate in having many guests visit us again and again.

Back in 2009 we blogged about the friendly competition between the Chapman and Adler families to see who would visit most often. Back then the Chapmans were besting the Adlers 13 to 10.

Well, the Adlers have now tied the score! Thanks for staying with us, it is always a delight to see you again.

Did anyone else notice that it is August? July went past in a blur of wonderful guests coming and going. It looks like August is going to whirl past the same way. We have been operating the Blueberry Cove Inn four blocks from the Narragansett Town Beach for twelve summers now. I don't remember one going by so quickly. (My mom says that is because I am getting old but what could she possibly know?)

Anyway, if you plan to spend any time on a last minute Rhode Island vacation and plan to stay with us, get a move on! August weekends are sold out as of today. We still have some midweek vacancies but those are going fast too. You have a chance at Labor Day Weekend though. How can you pass up a chance to come home to air conditioning after a wild day at the Rythm and Roots Festival over in Ninigret Park? How could you pass up our breakfasts before you go off on those bike rides or golf dates? Oh, and the beach, the beach still beckons a mere four blocks away.

So get organized! Check the reservation calendar and book now! Don't have your girl call my girl who calls your companion's girl (yes, I am old enough to remember when sexism was the norm at the office.) I'd say, "Just do it," but I'm afraid some big corporation might come after me.

If you don't act now don't blame me when your room is booked out from under you. I'm just saying. . .
