As innkeepers we frequently encounter folks who need to get away and “recharge their batteries.” We work to provide peace and quiet, good food and an environment that is responsive to all kinds of needs.
We are fortunate to be able to recharge ourselves on an annual basis. Our “retreat” is to a warmer clime where we spend hours diving. It is refreshing to swim with sea turtles, observe huge schools of colorful fish flowing by, find the occasional shark on the prowl, and watch enormous eagle rays “fly” gracefully through the turquoise waters.
Something about the sea quiets us, reminds us of our insignificance in the whole scheme of things, and challenges us to protectively cherish that which is our world.
