Red Wing Blackbirds and Burdock Pie

Posted on: June 20th, 2012 by staff No Comments

Well, Fyr Bal Festival is over, the bonfires burned.  We are now ready to head into the summer season.

I wanted to pass along a little tidbit that I learned a few years back about making pie.  I decided to make a rhubarb pie and needed some rhubarb.  I noticed there was a patch of rhubarb behind the motel and it was just the right size, not too small, not too large.  I grabbed the bunch and went home to bake my pie.  I took it out of the oven and it was a beautiful golden brown with a brown sugar crumble topping.  My husband went to take a bite and made an awful face.  He asked where I got the  rhubarb because he thought it was rotten.  I had just baked a beautiful burdock pie.  So, this rhubarb season, if you think you have found a great patch of wild rhubarb, you might want to double check!

On another note, we have red wing blackbirds nesting in our trees.  I believe we have at least 3 nests.  Today I was out watering the flower gardens and the birds do not like it when I get near the nests, so they start to swoop at me.  I did not see a nest in the garden where I was, but apparently I was too close.  The bird actually dove at me and hit me in the head.  I sprayed at it with my hose so it would leave me alone and it kept coming at me.  I am sure it was very amusing for the guests dining in the restaurant and the folks driving by in their cars!

Always an adventure at Ephraim Shores!  Until next time!

The Countdown to Wedding Bells Begins

Posted on: June 1st, 2012 by staff No Comments

Amber is getting married!  Ephraim Shores is on a countdown to a Nelson family wedding.  For those of you that do not know, Ephraim Shores is owned by the Nelson family and Amber is the granddaughter of Ranny, who I am sure you have seen tinkering around the motel fixing things and keeping us in tip top shape.

Guest will start arriving on Wednesday and will filter in until the big day, which is Friday, June 8th.  Amber and her fiance, Rich, are getting married at the Corner of the Past historical museum in Sister Bay.  That is where the summer farm market is, if you have attended that while in the county.

Needless to say, we are thrilled for Amber and excited to have most of the family together to celebrate.
