As I sit at my desk looking out my window, I take in the scenery of our property and I find myself really seeing it for the first time in a long time. I scan over the garden, down to the cottages, the restaurant, over the red legged frog habitat area and finally I stop and fixate on that spectacular, unspoiled Tomales Bay. I watch the sun casts its shimmers on the tranquil waters … in one word: Breathtaking! While my responsibilities require me to be in many locations during a typical day, today, right now, I decided to steal a moment to reflect on 2012 and to smile about my visions for 2013.
Reflecting over 2012 I am grateful, first, for my fantastic husband, my amazing son and our health! 2012 was also good to us at Nick’s Cove; I am grateful for all the guests that visited us for the first time and … for all of our guests that returned! I also am most certainly grateful to have been given the opportunity to be at the helm of one of the most magical places on California’s West Coast. And, in this moment, I am taken aback that this is where I work!
I am proud of our accomplishments at Nick’s Cove and am confident 2013 will bring even more success! In 2013 it is my intention to realize my dream of bringing back a working garden that will provide our chef resources for delicious meals that are truly farm-to-table as well as another place for our guests to enjoy the views of that remarkable Tomales Bay.
Life is good at Nick’s Cove and I am honored to work with such a dedicated group of people that make it their mission every day to provide the best, most sincere hospitality to our guests.
