Local Weather (Subject to Change!)!
We’re starting our day here at the harbor with clouds and a chance of rain, and temperatures hovering in the low 60s. A cool breeze is moving in and we’re only going to get a high of 65 degrees, but those clouds should start to clear in late afternoon. Bring a sweater or light jacket to dinner on the North Dock tonight, our last Shore Dinner of the season!
Kickstart your day at the Treehouse Wellness Center’s Boot Camp! Starting at 7:00 AM, jog or bike to various stations as you make Basin Harbor your gym for the morning. If you’re looking for something with a slower pace but still focusing on wellness, join Chessy for Vinyasa Yoga at 9:45 AM. Here you will take on breath-work and deep stretches to realign your mind and body.
In the Club Room at 9:00 AM, Jen is hosting a Jewelry Design workshop! Get those creative juices flowing this morning by designing beautiful jewelry (a bracelet or earrings) to match your style and remember your time at Basin Harbor! Sign up with the Concierge to reserve your spot.
Hit the tennis courts this morning with our tennis pros at the 10:00 AM Adult Tennis Clinic, where you will develop the techniques to master your game. Stick around for the Round Robin at 11:00 AM and put your skills to the test in this scramble tennis tournament!
Back over at the Treehouse Wellness Center, join Scott for an F.I.T. workout at 11:00 AM. This fun combination of cardiovascular exercise and strength training will give you the perfect Basin Harbor calorie burn!
After lunch has settled get a team together or compete on your own at the Basin Harbor Mini Triathlon! Jog, bike, and swim around our campus to get in a fun workout and bragging rights for the winners! Sign up at the Treehouse Wellness Center, and head down to the Waterfront at 1:45 PM to check in and start stretching.
We also have two opportunities to cruise the lake today: our 2:30 PM Narrated Cruise on the EScape and our complimentary Cocktail Cruise at 5:00 PM. The narrated cruise will take you around our part of the lake and Captain Marty will share tidbits about the natural landscape, the rich historical context of our lovely slice of Vermont, and even bring you across to see the magnificent Palisades. The Cocktail Cruise will kick off your evening with an hour-long trip on the water and drinks to keep you company, returning you to shore just in time for dinner! Sign-ups for both are located by the Concierge Desk.
Our feature dining option this evening is the Shore Dinner on the North Dock! Enjoy a delicious spread of fresh Vermont fare (and lobster of course), plus live music from the Onion River Jazz Band. Please make your dinner reservations with the Concierge, and note that dock seating is not guaranteed after 6:00 PM.
After you’ve filled up on lobster, head over to Town Hall at 9:00 PM for a Basin Harbor tradition: BINGO night!
