Spring trickles in…


Usually, we make statements like “Spring has Sprung” but this year, the spring season has been really reluctant to show up. We have been rained upon at great length and we feel mightily for those folks in Ottawa and Gatineau who have been spending weeks trying to keep their homes from floating away. The Rideau Reach however, has behaved itself fairly well and this past Saturday, there were two stalwart canoeists paddling just below the Prescott Street bridge.

Meanwhile, our team has been busily – perhaps prematurely – wishing on the new season by populating the Salamanders patio with its summer furniture, bringing over the umbrellas, preparing the new menu and doing some spring cleaning like pressure washing the patio. There are signs of grass already, so we are now getting our gardening tools ready for the annual landscaping bee. This past Saturday, we did a bit of branch trimming down by the water to give the trees there a better chance to thrive and to improve the view of the water.

Ok, so it is official: the Salamanders of Kemptville patio is open. A single gent won the trophy for “First On” this year. It was one day in April when the sun condescended to appearing over lunch time and he said: “The heck with this; I’m eating al fresco”. Environment Canada is telling us that the coming weeks will be better so come on down and check us out.

Mother’s Day is already booking up quickly. So, please, please, if you are planning on bringing Ma down for lunch or dinner, call us as soon as you can. We hate disappointing folks and there will be some special menu items on that day.

Oh, and weddings: we have folks booking the restaurant not only for the wedding itself but also for rehearsal dinners and the day after lunches. Once again, if you are tying the knot, please be in touch to book whatever events might support your great day.

Spring at Salamanders: what a great time of year! See you soon.
