The 15th annual Jack Russell Terrier Races were held on the lawn at the Inn at Perry Cabin yesterday. The weather was beautiful, the crowd was the biggest ever and the dogs were spectacular. If you haven’t seen Jacks race, put it on your calendar for next year. These little guys can really get going – some chase the fake squirrel and some chase each other. Either way, it is really something to see and enjoy. And, if you are a Dachshund fan, we have several heats of Dachshund Dashes that are a riot. Short legs and all – these guys don’t fly like Jacks but they do get moving! This year we were fortunate to be able to raise $3,400.00 for our local food bank.
Fireworks were spectacular this year. They lit up the sky over St. Michaels with brilliant colors and loud explosions. Guests at Five Gables enjoyed the festivities on the lawn at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. This is always a prime spot on the Miles River for viewing fireworks. And, this year, our guests also enjoyed the big band sounds of the Rhythm Doctors, a favorite group at the CBMM. Put this event on your calendar for next year – fabulous fireworks, great music and a relaxing stay at Five Gables Inn & Spa – it couldn’t be any better!
