Finally removed the lighted reindeer from the front lawn yesterday. Even though it is still bone chillingly cold, the sun is streaming through the windows, and the Great Room fireplace is off. I can hardly wait for summer at the beach. Every new Port Stanley resident I meet speaks of their town with so much affection- beautiful sunrises, amazing sunsets, the short walk into town, and, of course, the beach. My son Nick has relocated for his dream job in Scarborough, so is now close enough to enjoy a weekend at the beach. Breakfast on Saturday for him was a hotdog piled high with slaw, fries smothered in sauce, and orangeaid at Mackies, a beachside institution for as many years as I can remember. What more could you ask for? How about the most mouth-watering platter of perch we shared Saturday night at the Buccaneer? Tried to grab a waffle cone at Broderick's, but maybe we were rushing the season a bit. Oh well, you can always stop on your way home at Shaw's, another regional institution Elgin County can proudly call their own.
If this sounds appealing to you, please take the short drive from London or St. Thomas this weekend to visit my open house Saturday and Sunday, the 28th and 29th, 1-3, at 316 Selbourne Drive. As you enter the village, look for my open house signs: they will direct you to this beautiful property. If you are a family looking to put down roots in this quaint portside town, I think you will be pleased with what this home has to offer.- tons of usable space, fully decked out with beautiful new appliances, and your very own backyard oasis complete with a hot tub that will have you chilling under the stars many nights this summer. Homes in this price range are scarce in Port Stanley, and this street is very well maintained. This one is a knockout!!!
If you are looking for a change of pace, why not see for yourself? I invite you to come visit me this weekend, and discover how your family can capture the "Port Stanley frame of mind."
