Four years ago Good Morning Gloucester had the privilege of having a long awaited tour of the beautiful new Beauport Hotel before their grand opening. At the end of the tour we taped a podcast. After four amazingly successful years no one could have predicted that March of 2020 would arrive and with it bring mandatory closures of all restaurants and hotels….and schools and businesses….and pretty much everything else.
For 85 days we all stayed home, stayed in, stayed away, stayed alert….and worried, bonded, cried, and found ways to live in the new normal.
Yesterday marked the day that some of our favorite places were allowed to open with many new precautions in place. While we now revel in the fact that we can be together (cautiously), our hearts go out to some of our other favorite places who need to wait a bit longer before they can, in turn, open their doors.
Yesterday we were invited back to the Beauport for a live podcast a couple of hours before they reopened…..a second grand opening of sorts….and one just as anticipated as the first. Being on the deck, in the sunshine, with friends felt good. Meanwhile, throughout town, several other establishments were also greeting guests. As businesses work hard to maintain safety standards and their usual excellence….we look forward to visiting them all. We appreciate all of the work and planning that has gone into the preparations they have made. We patiently wait for the word that others can follow suit as we know how tough these times have been.
We enjoyed a cocktail and lunch at the Beauport after taping. All of the new menu items sound phenomenal (more evidence of the hard work done behind the scenes while we were all at home) and the burger and truffle fries that I had were tremendous. All of the staff were happy, accommodating, cheerful, and appropriately cautious.
The Beauport’s new BSafe plan is being executed parallel to their stellar hospitality. Together they have created an ambience that allows you to feel safe….and spoiled. It was so good to be back.
