Local Weather (Subject to Change!)!
Enjoy a bright and sunny morning here at Basin Harbor! Wake up to temperatures on the cooler side, but as the day goes on it will warm up into a high of 80 degrees. We’ll have some clouds rolling in this afternoon but they shouldn’t get in the way of your time by the pool or down at the Waterfront. This evening the temperatures will dip back into the low 70s, perfect for a round of Night Golf!
Thank you to all who attended Mia Halfman’s Birthday Boot Camp class yesterday! Great workout all, and Happy Birthday Mia!

At 2:00 PM, we’ll have a game of Knockerball over at the Red Mill Field!

Even if you don’t get a chance inside a bubble, it’s a hoot watching everyone else knock around too!
Local artist Bethany Farrell will be on property today to guide you through a Paint ‘n’ Sip! For an excellent lesson in acrylic painting with a little fun on the side, sign up for one of her two sessions (3:00 PM or 6:30 PM) and get ready to ramp up the creativity and cocktails!
