Christmas at Ft. Morgan!!!!!!

Christmas at Ft. Morgan!!!! It is just a few days until Christmas now, and I am on the hunt for that Christmas-y feeling. It has been such an odd year, with storms and crazy economy, not to mention unseasonably warm weather. The Christmas feeling has been sorely missed. This cheery feeling pokes it head out here and there with the visitors who come through, but it is far from the warm fuzzy norm of the Christmas Season. I have been to the Church Christmas Musical, and sung carols on my own, the very worshipful and the very silly ones. I’ve baked a few cookies, watched some Christmas movies and even put up a tree here at the office. When I am with that tree here at the office is when it seems most like Christmas. So, I have a plan to go ahead and put a tree up at home too. I know it’s a little strange not to have one. The one at work is so beautiful I thought it would suffice. So, I’m off to put up my tree at home watch some Christmas Movies and bake cookies. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, or Happy Holiday, whatever you may be celebrating. Please enjoy our Beach Christmas Tree. This tree is decorated with seashells from the beach that washed up after the storms.

Winter at the Beach, home away from home for our Snow Birds!!!!

It's that time of year again, Winter at the beach. Our winter is full of fun adventures and beautiful sunsets to share. Our winter guests, affectionately known as Snow Birds, begin arriving just before Thanksgiving. They spend the winter with us here at the beach, with our mild climate and Southern Hospitality it is truly a home away from home. We think of our guests as family and try to have events throughout the winter for them to mix and mingle and have a great time.
This winter is no exception, we plan on several classes for painting, jewelry making, a book club, and of course Sowing Our Wild Oats!!! What has become our annual sea oat planting, to help protect our beach and habitats for so many of our endangered species that live right here at Ft. Morgan. It is a fun time for everyone. We have had wonderful results from all of the efforts made by our owners and winter guests. We can't wait until this celebration comes around this year. I'm so glad our family is back for another year and can't wait to have everyone over for our first mixer!!!!
