Here’s a post about some things you don’t see every day at the Brampton Inn…
There’s something about Independence Day that must really take a toll on people. Especially when it falls on or near a weekend, it seems to be a time when folks like to pack in as much fun and activity as possible. At least that’s how it seems to us because the week following July 4th is historically one of the slowest business weeks of the year here. We just assume everyone is tuckered out and back to the daily grind!
Knowing this, we sometimes plan for things that need doing when the inn is a little quieter. For example, look at this…
Looks odd, doesn’t it? Like a giant Tonka Toy that someone left out in our driveway. We certainly wouldn’t do this when there’s a house full of people. Michael had some maintenance issues to take care of (as he always does) way up on the top of the house and this was the only practical way of getting it done.
Here you can just see his head at the top of the bucket. The man has unlimited energy (and a pretty good head of hair! )
Always mindful of the lawn:
It just so happens that this was also the week that some local artists called up to ask if they could bring their en plein air group to the inn to paint. Since we only had a few guests here and they were only going to be in 2 or 3 cars, of course we said yes. It was quite lovely to see them out there doing their thing; too bad there weren’t more people here to see it. So here you go:
I particularly like this photo: the ring of green around the artist makes his white shirt pop!
While we’ve missed having lots of guests this week, we’re certainly ready for the weekend, when we’ll be full again. Bring it on!!!
Hope to see YOU here soon!
