January 2013 Journal:
It has been such a pleasant "Inaugural Month" at The 1910 Inn.
At the apartments, the "village people" Al and Joe are living happily. Lucille from Maryland joined the village for two weeks, also.
Meanwhile at the inn the most wonderful guests come and go, enjoying relaxing days, comfortable nights, and delicious breakfasts.
Lisa and Chris from California stayed for a week. Oh, they are the cutest couple...young love...it's a beautiful thing.
Sue and Alleane visited again and added to the Mama Harriette Collection at
The 1910 Inn. See Harriette and Jeanette's "School Girls of 80 Years Ago..." entry.
Marni brought her mama's marble-topped end table from Virginia to live at The 1910 Inn. Its oval shape looks quite lovely aside the curved carved wood of the red sofa in the round music room.
Adventurous Heidi swam in Spring Bayou one afternoon. She returned to Tarpon Springs for a concert recently and brought bassoon music for Mary.
Guests attend concerts, visit museums, bike along the Pinellas Trail, and enjoy local restaurants.
Gardening is in the early stages at The 1910 Inn. Gardening can be done in January in Florida. When I mentioned that the side garden is a 'work in progress', I received these wise words from Karin from Virginia:
"Life is a Work In Progress". Such a nice chat we had over breakfast that morning!
Upcoming Event at The 1910 Inn:
February 7: Florida Hospital North Pinellas / Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital's annual Burnette Society Reception. Preparations are almost complete, and the string of 'vintage' cafe lights along the front veranda cast a warm nostalgic glow to the inn. A lovely evening is planned for The 1910 Inn...where time stands still.
