We have another bright & sunny day in store for us! Temperatures will start on the cooler side, making a slow climb through the 60s this morning. It’ll warm up to a high of 76 degrees this afternoon, perfect for a dip in the lake! We’ll see a few clouds roll in this evening, and temperatures will drop back down to the 50s overnight.
We’d like to send belated Happy Birthday wishes to Nadia Belfort, who turned 10 yesterday! We hope you had a wonderful day and fun celebration here at the harbor!
We’re excited to report that during Hospitality Hour on the Lodge Lawn yesterday evening, Mike asked Adrienne to marry him and she said yes! Congratulations to the happy couple, and best wishes from your Basin Harbor family!

For some fun on the water, you can take part in the Family Fishing Tournament at 2:00 PM or enjoy a R.O.V Shipwreck Cruise at 2:30 PM.
