Old Man Winter is struggling to keep hold on the Outer Banks but his grip is slipping. The Camellia bushes–one of the earliest spring flowering shrubs–have burst into bloom in the Pelican House Prayer Garden.
Dandelions are springing up in defiance every where. There is even a subtle shade of brighter green creeping into the leaves of the coniferous live oaks (or so we keep telling ourselves).
Daffodils are sticking their noses out of ground and will soon be keeping company with Bishop Sanders in the Memorial Garden.
During the week our Sound to Sea program is in full swing. Gleeful shouts of children running around in the sun blend with the occasional leaf blower or hedge trimmer as our maintenance team start spring pruning on the landscape.
We expect a couple more tussles with ol’ Winter next week but we’re keeping warm and toasty until we wait him out. Saturday, February 14th, is expected to be mid-fifties and sunny.
Valentine’s Day Weekend is upon us here at Trinity. We have a few marriage or couples retreats on property, as well as sisterly ladies’ crafting get-togethers
The beach is so peaceful this time of year. Pine Knoll Shores is a small town with few year-round residents so you have the vast ocean all to yourself…the shell hunting is great with so little competition.
When the sun goes down and Old Man Winter sniffs around the corner of the buildings, guests spend lazy evenings staring into a cozy living room fire…or into a good book.
Are you still looking for that last minute gift for your one-and-only?
Then give us a call and come on down to Trinity. There’s nothing like a romantic elopement at the last minute…even if you have to bring the kids!
