February 2013 Journal:
February began as busy as January ended.
The 1910 Inn was delighted to host the Florida Hospital North Pinellas / Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital's annual Burnette Society Reception on February 7. It was a lovely evening, as seventy-five guests enjoyed the foods and refreshments prepared and donated by event co-sponsors, The Original Mama Maria's Greek Cuisine and B-21 Liquors.
And since hosting 75 guests was manageable, why not try hosting a hundred or more? So on February 16 The 1910 Inn was one of the 27 host destinations for Wine Walk participants. (See The 1910 Inn's website link: Upcoming Event Dates for more information about the Tarpon Springs Merchants Association's Wine Walk events.) It was wonderful to have 126 Wine Walk participants come tour the inn and enjoy a wine tasting and delicious baklava, made with love by Innkeeper Annie.
At the apartments Jim and Carla from Arkansas came to spend the month of February in warm, sunny Florida. With the exception of a few cold mornings, our weather did not disappoint them. We look forward to having Jim and Carla back again next winter.
Inn guests came to Tarpon Springs and The 1910 Inn from various countries, US states, and Florida cities. It is truly fascinating and educational to hear about their lives and journeys.
Indiana farmer, Roger, and his wife, Diane, came to visit Florida before their planting season begins next month. What wonderful talks we had about farming. Always remember, "God Made a Farmer".
Gabriel from Florida enjoyed fishing in Spring Bayou. (see entry "Gabriel Goes Fishing")
Many guests came to The 1910 Inn, as a side trip to their business conferences in Clearwater and Tampa.
Some guests came to spend time away from the daily busy-ness of parenthood.
Inn guest, Geoff, from England, ("Geoff with a G...it's the proper way to spell Geoff") was in search of a pub that served IPA beers, and our local Tarpon Tavern offered 4 IPAs during the days of Geoff's visit with his wife, Harriet. Geoff was quite delighted!
The inn is a haven and a comfort...especially to those who come to Tarpon Springs to visit dear friends. It is a home away from home.
It has been a beautiful February at The 1910 Inn.
