We were treated oh so nice, from the moment we drove up, until the moment we reluctantly drove off..
We were greeted with a genuine smile at the entrance, to what we thought was the secret garden! Ruth's Garden, and that smile belonged to ruth.
Our trip had been a long one, but worth it, we knew that when we crossed the Marblehead Neck! It was like going into another very pleasant world..(-;
It seemed Skip and Ruth knew how tired and dusty we were from car travel and offered drinks and relaxation immediately! and that sure hit the spot..
We started to notice what a beautiful place we had come..
For some wonderful reason we ended up in the Lighthouse Suite apartment that opens up to the roof! and yes you can see the whole world from up here! We would have coffee and watch the seagulls go by...I close my eyes to this day and can see the view of the ocean and bay, the smell of the sea and warm coffee.
We had originally booked the Seabreeze Suite, which is a very lovely suite, but for some reason the upper apartment was available and we took it.
From this central location we would venture out and explore some of this countries most historical sites and Salem in October was interesting..It was always good to go home at the end of a hard day of vacationing, and that is how we viewed the Seagull Inn, Home..
Skip and Ruth , well it was like we had known them for a long time and we had just met, very warm and hospitable..
Food in the morning was yummy and a good selection, so no one would be left out..This is served buffet style and a pleasant time..
Just thinking about this trip again makes me want to go back!!
One thing I wanted to mention was the swing! I forgot to get a picture, but this swing is just outside the apartment door and is the most incredible swing, made me feel young again, I loved it..
We would recommend Highly to anyone wanting to find a breath away from the busy world, this is it..Families, newlyweds, couples!
We would like to revisit in the Summer..
Thanks for the memories
