Gray Whales Cruising by Long Beach, WA

January 23rd, 2014 by Susie Goldsmith

Seeing and hearing whales always causes an inexplicable joy in me. Humans are fascinated with their fellow mammals. Whales breath air, have hair, are warmblooded and give birth to live offspring that suckle milk from their mothers.  Gray whales range in length from 40-50 feet and can have flukes (tales) that can measure ten feet across. Females are usually larger than males .  The Gray whales weigh 50,000 to 80,000 pounds and can live up to 50 years. They can start growing barnacles even as youngsters.  We’ve seen Grays rubbing their barnacles on the North Jetty at Cape Disappointment State Park in Ilwaco, Washington, 10 minutes from our B&B, Boreas Inn.

On occasion you can see a Gray whale fluke off the Long Beach Peninsula!

Two times each year, the Gray whales cruise by the Long Beach, Washington Peninsula.  After spending summers feeding and fattening up in the Arctic waters, the Gray whales head south cruising off the Pacific Coast to the bays in Southern California and Baja, Mexico.  You can witness this migration starting in mid-December and it peaks in early January and can usually be seen into early February.

When Gray whales are cruising by the Long Beach Peninsula, whether heading north or south, the whale’s goal is to get where they are going and generally they do not hang around and feed–except for maybe some shrimp-like creatures and a fish or two.  In fact, they are known to go without food for 3 to 5 months, which is why they must fatten up when in the rich Arctic waters before heading south to play in Baja.  While in Baja, the whales mate and nurse their young. The gestation period for Grays is 11-13 months.  When nursing, Gray whale moms can produce up to 50 gallons of milk daily containing over 50% fat. Calves can gain 60-70 pounds a day and build up their blubber quite quickly.

The Grays begin their return journey back north to the Arctic from Baja starting in mid-March. The immature whales, adult males and females without offspring head north first cruising by our coast in March and April. Then later, females with calves head north at a slower rate, passing the Long Beach, Washington Peninsula in May.  So there is the possibility of seeing whales on and off for about six months of the year. We have seen gray whales in the surf-line from the lookout on Loop 100 in September leading us to believe that some Gray whales must be hanging out on the Washington coast much of the year.  So maybe there are now “home” pods of Gray whales.

The best spots here to watch for whales is from the North Head Lighthouse and the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center at Cape Disappointment State Park, a 10 minute drive from Boreas Inn.  The whales can spout up to 15 feet in the air through their two blowholes, so that is often what we see when we watch for whales at the Park.  When we have gray skies, the whales water and skies are fairly close in color so the spouting is sometimes all you can see.  Bring your binoculars or borrow ours–there’s no guarantee you will see Gray whales, but it is fun to look.  With the fabulous weather we’ve been having all fall and winter, this is a great activity on the Long Beach Peninsula! It’s much easier to see gray whales when there is blue sky!

This is more likely what you will see--the spout! Thrilling!

The #1 New Years’ Resolution

January 8th, 2014 by Susie Goldsmith

So what is the Innkeeper’s #1 New Years’ Resolution? Here we are on day 8 of 2014 and I’ve already blown my #1 2014 New Years Resolution–which was to work out three times a week at SNAP Fitness, our great new local 24 hour gym. It is not that Boreas Inn is slamming busy this time of year.  Being overwhelmed by lots of guests, unfortunately, is not a good reason not to work out three times per week like it is in the busy season. So what is it that devastates my #1 New Years’ Resolution? Each day seems to evaporate.  Poof!  And the gym isn’t a part of it.

New Years' Resolution

I do not think I will lift large weights. Maybe just some elliptical and circuit work?

Twenty four hours per week really do evaporate at DaVita, my other job that has re-immersed me in clinical social work, my first passion. Intense, necessary, important to me and hopefully my patients and it is very worthwhile work.  When one is accustomed to working seven days per week for 18 years, cramming in another 24 hours in the work week at DaVita is no big deal, right?

Let’s see, other impediments to  me keeping my #1 New Years’ Resolution….The Visitor’s Bureau Executive Committee and Board. Some hours in the first two weeks of the month, then email…not such a huge time commitment, right? Right. The Washington Bed&Breakfast Guild Board of Directors meetings. Quarterly meetings, email, love the organization, 2.5 days this week. Completely mentally and emotionally satisfying teamwork with a fun, interesting, inspiring group of committed entrepreneurial innkeepers.

Ahhh…that’s what happened to my #1 New Years’ Resolution for 2014.  It’s day 8–I’ve only worked out twice.  But I have worked out my brain on a daily basis.  But that does not register on a FitBit!  And not to forget, we have had a few guests at Boreas Inn too.

Now that I’ve analyzed and viewed in print what’s been up in the first 8 days of 2014,  I understand why I have not kept my #1 New Years Resolution for this year.  And I WILL meet my commitment to myself and work out at SNAP Fitness three times per week.  Or maybe two…  :-)  :-)

Putting my #1 New Years’ Resolution aside, there is good stormy weather and high surf predicted for this coming weekend and nowhere is better than Boreas Inn  and the available Yett Beach House to watch a winter storm on the Long Beach Peninsula!  Boreas Inn has beautiful beds, cozy fireplaces, and a fine breakfast befitting a King and Queen (which are also our bed sizes)! Bill and I will be here in fine form with nothing but time to devote to showing our guests the best B&B experience on the coast.  ( The extra special treat this weekend is the Seahawks game at 1:35 pm on Saturday, the 11th. Our guests will be invited to watch the game with us, dressed in our Seahawks jersey finest, at The Lost Roo.  Seven giant TV’s should be adequate for viewing!

And hopefully this weekend, maybe we can walk in the rain…to SNAP Fitness to work out! Boreas Inn Innkeepers entertaining in the Kitchen.

The Holidays are a Time to Visit Boreas Inn and Dig Razor Clams!

December 13th, 2013 by Susie Goldsmith

Stay at Boreas Inn  this month! We have some availability for Christmas and plenty New Years and all you need for Christmas are gifts for  under the Boreas tree.  A ready-made holiday is yours complete with decorations! Just bring your toothbrush!

Our Crab Cake and Champagne Brunch on New Years’ Day is about as delectable as any breakfast you’ve ever had because we like to start the year out right! The Depot, Pelicano, The Shelburne Inn Restaurant, 42nd Street and Jimella and Nanci’s are open for New Years’ and if you would like to dine out on Christmas, many of these restaurants are open–we will set up your dinners!!  There will be fireworks on New Years’ Eve sponsored by the City of Long Beach!

Readers of this blog and Facebook friends can go for our Walk-in Rate ($150 for $179 rooms and $170 for the $199 Dunes Suite)  if you can book at least two nights! Just mention it in your online reservation notes and we will fix your rate  in the system!

The Inn was decorated by our guests and family last weekend and we had such a relaxing time time doing it–that in reality, it didn’t get completed. So Bill has hung the fresh cedar boughs and new lights outside this week!

This weekend is the annual B&B Open House with The Shelburne, Charles Nelson Guest House and Boreas Inn participating  Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 pm.  Come by and see us and taste some great cookies baked by Bill and Susie!  Open House Visitors are encouraged to bring along non-perishable food items and canned foods to donate to our local food banks.  It’s a hungry time of year for many of our neighbors, so we hope we can make a tiny difference!

The Port of Ilwaco is again hosting the World’s Largest Crab Pot Christmas Tree.  How many of you have seen one of those?  Many of the Saturday Market artisans have moved indoors on the Port to sell their wares for the holidays and are open on the weekends until Christmas.  Shopping on the Peninsula is very good–I used to come here from Portland, before I moved here, just to shop before the holidays!

For even more activities this weekend and over New Years, there are razor clams to be harvested this weekend, December 14th,15th,16th and then over New Years on December 29th, 30th and 31st! These are late afternoon tides…easy and fun. The clamming has been great this year.

Once a year we do a Holiday Newsletter, “The Boreas Barometer”. We will do them more frequently in the future, but do not want to be nuisance emailers!  I have no way of attaching the entire newsletter to this blog post, but do have a picture of the masthead!  It is a pretty newsletter..produced with my own pics by Reservation Nexus, our reservation system webmasters.   Boreas Inn is fortunate to have a few thousand people on our email list and we hope that the newsletter is informative and lets readers know we’re thinking of them!  If you’d like one, just drop us a line to boreas@boreasinn.com and we will send you one!!  We wish you a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Prosperous New Years full of love and friendship!       Your innkeepers, Susie Goldsmith and Bill Verner

Our holiday newsletter is out today!

Bonney Lassie Garden Blogger at Boreas Inn

September 4th, 2013 by Susie Goldsmith

We were delighted to host The Bonney Lassie Garden Blogger aka Alison Conliffe and her husband Nigel at Boreas last weekend.  They hail from Bonney Lake although Nigel, is originally from the U.K.  as most Nigels are! :-)  The Bonney Lassie got to meet my friend and her fellow Garden Blogger Skyler Walker aka Tangly Cottage and met Skyler’s husband Allen and toured Skyler’s glorious gardens at her home in Ilwaco.  Skyler blogs about our gardens frequently, taking images of particular areas from “before” to “after” so you can actually see the work in progress.  Bonney Lassie took all “after” pictures which was refreshing to see someone else’s  interpretation of the “finished product”.  And yes, it is September and the gardens have passed their “sell by” date, but are still looking quite beautiful compared to most other years, when they are fading earlier in the season.

I think this year the gardens are more vital because they are stuffed with gorgeous perennials, thanks to Skyler and also to my own attempted concentration on limiting the annuals, the “color spots”, for which I have a great weakness, to only pots on the decks and my flower boxes.  But also, because I have never enjoyed my own gardens more, I am taking better care of them than usual and have watered and fertilized more often and will continue to do so until I can no longer prolong the inevitable.  I replanted the kitchen window box yesterday, removed the overgrown, leggy violas and planted mums and colorful “winter” pansies.

Razor Clam Festival in Long Beach, Washington April 27 & 28, 2013

March 31st, 2013 by Susie Goldsmith

Are you looking for something absolutely unique to do April 26th -28th? Come to the Long Beach Razor Clam Festival! Oh the nostalgia!  My earliest memories of clam digging on the Long Beach Peninsula, when I was a toddler, were of cold, bare wet feet, soon to be numb, in the early morning. Out on the wide beach, in the wet sand, with my parents and two older brothers,  I trotted around looking for dimples in the sand.  “There’s one, Dad! There’s one, Mom!”  I was too little to dig.  My brothers had clam guns.  We got a gazillion clams and then, the inevitable. We had to clean the clams.  I was too little, for years, to touch a knife, and if you know me now, sometimes I am still too little to touch a knife!  But I had to rinse the clean clams free of sand under the cold tap water in the clam cleaning rooms at whichever old motels we stayed in.  My frozen fingers now matched my frozen, wet sandy feet! In the Boulevard Motel or The Lighthouse Motel…wherever our family could stay, the clam-cleaning rooms smelled the same–salty, slightly musty, very damp.  Back then, we could dig all the clams we wanted. So we would clean then for what seemed to me like hours. So the razor clams we loved so much would be ground up and made into clam chowder.  I turned the crank of the old food grinder–I still have one. I was never too little to grind clams.  The razors made the best clam chowder in the world and my dad always took all the credit.  The fried clams he produced were always considered a  huge treat–way back then.  I remember Long Beach’s World’s Largest Frying Pan being used for frying clams.  It was clearly a good time.

Well- the GOOD TIMES ARE BACK!  They say 20,ooo people came to the 2nd Razor Clam Festival in 1941!  The last Razor Clam Festival was, we think, in 1968.  Well it’s BACK!  The first Razor Clam Festival in around 45 years will happen in Long Beach, WA on April 27 and 28 this year!  This event brings back such sweet childhood memories for me and perhaps it will be a new memory for you.

So who is the genius who re-created the The Long Beach Razor Clam Festival?  Well, Randy Dennis of The Dennis Company, who happens to be one of the State’s most inventive, entrepreneurial, forward thinking and nicest guys we will ever know!  Events of the Festival include:

Clam Festival Court–Francis O’Neil was the “Clam Festival Bathing Beauty” in 1948–the QUEEN of the court will be here to re-start the tradition!

Razor Clam Digging Lessons- You have to pre-register for Saturday and Sunday morning lessons in front of The Breakers Hotel.

WA Department of Fish & Wildlife will judge “Biggest Clam Dug” and “Best Looking Limit” for $100 prizes!

Chowder Cook-Off–Local restaurants will compete for “Best Chowder” Trophy accompanied by music from the North Coast Blues band.

There will be Tummy Warmer Stations at the Pavillion at the foot of the Bolstad Beach Approach with cookies, hot cocoa, coffee & tea.

Vintage Clam Festival postcards, t-shirts, mugs, magnets, the Official Razor Clam Festival Poster by Don Nesbitt and other swag will be available!

There will be street entertainment by Dennis Duck, the Beard’s Hollow Pirates and Queen L DeDa’s Mermaids downtown on Saturday!

There will be clam supplies, weather gear and more available at the Dennis Company in Long Beach on both days.

A Clam Gun Decorating Contest is being held at the local elementary schools, the Long Beach Boys & Girls Club with public voting.

So where will you stay for this grand occasion on the weekend of April 26th?  Currently there are openings at beautiful Boreas Inn, just a few short blocks from this much anticipated event!  You can re-warm your frozen tootsies and laze around after your invigorating participation in this historic event–the Razor Clam Festival in downtown Long Beach, WA!

So if you’re thinking of coming to this really fabulous event, make your reservations now!!!

 

Cape Disappointment State Park on the Long Beach Peninsula–Our Favorite Place to Visit!

August 13th, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Bill and I just returned from our brief weekly disappearing act to eat Serious Pizza at Cape Disappointment State Park in Ilwaco on the Long Beach, Washington Peninsula.  First of  all, this park is NOT a disappointment–it is our favorite Washington State Park.  It was named “Cape Disappointment” because in 1788, Captain John Meares, a fur trader, was disappointed because this was not the opening to the river–and is, in fact, is located just north of the infamous Mouth of the Columbia River!  Cape Disappointment is also home to the National Park housing Maya Lin’s “Confluence Project” honoring the Indian tribes Lewis and Clark encountered at the confluences of the rivers on their journey west.  Captain Clark and 11 of the “Corps of Discovery” hiked all over the land that is now Cape Disappointment State Park and from McKenzie Head, saw their first panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean!  Then they proceeded to hike north up the Peninsula, right across the property that is now Boreas Inn, located on the 1805 high water mark. So you get to sleep right on the Lewis and Clark Trail!


Of course, one of the most scenic parts of the Park are the two lighthouses, The North Head Lighthouse and the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse.  The North Head is easily explored by parking in the lot and walking down to the lighthouse on a road alongside the rock face overlooking the Pacific Ocean and just north of Benson Beach.  This is a place to linger.  All day.  The waves, huge in the winter but omnipresent, are hypnotic. The color of the water seems to change from blue to green to gray in a storm, but always a stunning contrast with the white tips of the peaks of the waves.  Whale watching from the North Head is often rewarding.  We look for the clumps of kelp offshore and occasionally see the spouts. The pelicans, eagles, many varieties of gulls, terns and a huge array of seabirds make this spot make for some of the best birdwatching in the West. Cape D lighthouse is a hike from the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center (in winter and anytime, the best view of the Mouth of the Columbia and the jetties), around Dead Man’s Cove.  Our guests come from around the world to see these two lighthouses, within miles of Boreas!

I mentioned Serious Pizza!  Well–seriously now, take the combination of a wood-fired pizza oven, burning cherry and apple, the “00 fino” flour imported from Italy, imported cheeses, meats from a great Seattle butcher chop and a location at Waikiki Beach at Cape D (as we call it), and you have not only the recipe for the best wood-fired pizza in Southwest Washington, but a spectacular setting near the amphitheater at Cape D State Park.  With eagles flying overhead (perhaps looking hungrily at your pizza-or maybe at your dog) and osprey circling around with crows and gulls harrassing them, you have an experience you will never forget.  Our favorite pizza is, you guessed it, “The Boreas”–the vegetarian pizza with garlic olive oil base, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, olives and pepperoni.  How special is it to have a pizza named after Boreas Inn?  State Parks built Jim and Chi, the purveyors of this fine pizza, a permanent structure so that visitors to the park, including campers staying in the 240 campsites, can have pizza!  We call ahead to avoid waiting perhaps an hour for the most memorable pizza. It’s truly Neopolitano–a thin delectable crust and just the right amount of cheese for a non-guilt producing light meal.  They also have wood-fired oysters and mouth-watering wood-fired wings.  Homemade ice cream and brownies….oh my!  Watch for Jim and Chi’s Serious Pizza to come soon to the town of Long Beach!

I have attached a very fine video about Cape Disappointment State Park to this blog!  It stars a few of our favorite State Park employees and some of the best scenery this area has to offer.  The Park is located 10 minutes from Boreas Inn.  We are soooo lucky to have Cape D State Park in our backyard.  So come to Boreas Inn and we will direct you to our favorite park, Cape Disappointment!  Enjoy the YouTube about Cape D.!

 

 

 

4th of July in Long Beach, WA– Boreas has Front-Row Seats for Fireworks!

June 23rd, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Boreas Inn still has a couple of really beautiful rooms open for the 4th of July holiday weekend!  Since the 4th is on a Monday, a few of our guests coming for the weekend are actually leaving right on the 4th–so we have a couple rooms open on the 4th proper in addition to the 1st and 2nd of July.  This is NEXT weekend–wow!  We are asking for a three-night minimum over the weekend, but as we approach the holiday, we will compromise on two-night stays, if we must, but three nights is so relaxing at Boreas!

We love the 4th of July in Long Beach, Washington.  Well–sort of.  It is clearly the most exciting day of the year on the gorgeous Long Beach Peninsula.  We would love it more if all the people packed out what they pack in. (Our Boreas guests are always perfect–it’s the other 20,0000 guests on the Peninsula who aren’t so perfect!)  The Long Beach Peninsula is truly a place for amateur and professional pyromaniacs!

To address this post-explosive and partying beach clean-up problem on the 4th of July on the Long Beach Peninsula, there are now “Treasure Our Beach” volunteers at all the beach approaches, handing out trash bags and fliers encouraging everyone who comes to the beach to picnic and blow things up, to take their trash home with them!  We treasure our Treasure our Beach volunteers.  Thank you all!  If any of our readers would like to help in this effort, please let us know.  Shelly Pollock’s Grass Roots Garbage Gang will have hundreds of volunteers combing the beaches on July 5th to pick up after the 4th of July revelers and we are grateful to those volunteers also!   This is a big beach clean-up and we always need more volunteers!

Well first of all, on Saturday, the 2nd of July, to lead off the pyrotechnic displays, there is a stunning and sparkly professional fireworks show on the Port of Ilwaco over the harbor.  We like to reserve tables for our guests at Pelicano on Saturday at the Port of Ilwaco, before the 4th so that they have front row seats for the Ilwaco Fireworks display.  So in addition to wine pairings at Pelicano that evening, there are fireworks pairings also!  If you have dinner at Pelicano, you will also have a place to park right on the harbor for the fireworks. It is truly inspiring to see the glittering on the water and this display just whets the appetite for the total pyrotechnic craziness that is the true 4th of July in Long Beach, WA.  We’ve never seen anything quite like Long Beach on the 4th.  So there is a method to our madness–we like our guests to dine on the best for breakfast and dinner and watch the celebration of our nation’s independence!

We brag about our 28-mile long beach.  Well just about every foot of our very long beach will be filled with cars, families, picnics and We’d estimate–millions of dollars of fireworks that will blow your socks off.  This doesn’t include the very fine professional show that happens at dark on the ocean-end of the Bolstad Beach approach five blocks south of Boreas Inn.  It’s all FREE and quite insane.  Stay on the boardwalk or sit in the back yard of Boreas Inn, (the hot tub has a great view) and stay a safe distance from all the pyromaniacs and you will have a great time in Long Beach, Washington on the 4th of July, 2011.   I found a video taken by visitors to the Peninsula last year and you can get a little idea of what it’s like in front of Boreas Inn on the 4th.  Hang onto your sparklers, baby!

Grab our last rooms and watch the 2nd and 4th of July shows at Boreas Bed and Breakfast Inn on the lovely Long Beach Peninsula!

We’re Always Cooking Up a Storm at Boreas B&B in Long Beach, Washington

May 21st, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Odell Hathaway, our guest/friend/budding videographer likes to take pics and video of me doing the “Food Tour” at breakfast time.  You might be able to focus on the food in the video while I am focusing on my ever-drooping face!  Both are entertaining.  In this video, I have prepared breakfast for a small group of returning guests a couple of weekends ago. Bill was in Eugene for the weekend and I had our guests/friends all to myself!  The baked apple french toast I am describing is an adapted recipe originally from The Shelburne Inn, our dear friends, David and Laurie.  I love making this dish–something you can put together the night before and bake in the morning.  Thanks to Odell for posting this video to YouTube!  Come to Boreas Inn–we have availability over Memorial Day weekend—which is NEXT weekend.  We promise to make you very happy indeed at our Long Beach Washington Bed and Breakfast.  Boreas inn is upscale, but never pretentious!

Valentine’s Day Offers Delectable Dining for Boreas Inn Guests!

January 23rd, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Not only will you be treated to sumptuous beds with the softest linens and feather beds placing goose down above and below your tired and deserving bods enticing you to sleep like babies, you will be treated to a weekend of culinary expertise starting with your daily candle light brunch feast by the fireplace!  With only one guest room remaining, you can count on these “simple” pleasures continuing on for President’s Day weekend (February 18,19,20–we have rooms available!)  and throughout the year.   Boreas Inn specializes in romance, there’s no doubt about it! We consistently treat our guests like royalty, but with style and humor (at least we hope you will think we’re humorous!).  Fine dining, whether at the breakfast table at  Boreas Inn,  partnering with our local restaurants,  is of crucial importance to all of us on the beautiful Long Beach Peninsula in SW Washington State.  We are in “foodie heaven”. That’s why we all have to work out at the gym a few times a week! (New Year’s Resolution #1!)

Valentine’s Weekend calls upon not just us, but also our  restauranteurs, to “pony up”  with the most wonderful special Valentine’s weekend menu’s.  Sample the Shelburne Inn Restaurant’s menu–itself a beautiful piece, not to mention the cuisine that completes their package!  Take a peek at the hotlink and then let us know if you would like us to book you a table at The Shelburne Inn Restaurant over Valentine’s or President’s Day weekend!

Valentine's Day at Boreas Inn will be the highlight of your February!
