Pictures speak louder than words. Hard to believe how far we have come!
It is September 5, 2015 - I think that I FINALLY have the time that I've always longed for to BREATHE, THINK and REFLECT on more than forty two years of being an integral part of what was once known as THE FAIRVIEW and what is now known as OSBORNE'S INN. Wow - what a run!!!!!
The attached picture is probably one of the first that I took after we bought the property in April, 1974. There were four childen when we bought the Inn. They were: Kelley, age four; Kevin, age 3; Colleen, age 19 months and Frank X, age two months old. Life, indeed was a whirl and it's been a whirl ever since that time. What a run it has been! A run with a lot of FUN!
The picture was taken in Brigantine - one of our first fun trips was to the Brigantine Castle. We had gone to a local restaurant on the water for lunch. Megan, our fifth child, who was not even thought about at the time that we bought 'the shore', is the one dressed for winter. Note her clothing!
What a joy for me to FINALLY appreciate all that has gone from April 1, 1974 to the present. Frank and I have had a great run AND we are so happy that you are 'there' to share our moments.
Please, if you will, take a moment to share one of your memories of Ocean City and Osborne Inn. It is because of special you, our treasured guests, that we all - Frank, Peggy Ann, Kelley, Kevin, Colleen, Frank X, Megan, Leslie, Brad, Brian, Kerry, Christie, Annie, Maggie, Colin, Grace, Cameron, Molly, Gavin, Ellie, Delaney, James Patrick (JP), Katie, Erin and Ryan are able to enjoy this wonderful place which we call our Ocean City home.
Thanks for the memories and keep them coming!
With love and smiles to all!
