Over breakfast, we chatted about this and that. Every morning, Clara exclaimed about how much she appreciated the organic fruit, yogurt, and granola. I got to make a green smoothie for her. Michael tasted and pronounced it, "not bad."
Clara and I also shared our concerns about pollution. In fact, she told me her parents, originally from Colombia, were both professional agronomists, and had advocated for organic produce and pesticide-free farming techniques for years.
Michael does PR in New York City and was obviously very good at his job. I asked if he could work from a place like Wellfleet, and we concluded no, that being close to Manhattan allowed him to attend certain impromptu meetings that he might miss were he to choose a more rural lifestyle.
When Clara and Michael left, Clara said she preferred staying at green B&Bs, that it’s important to think how one spends one’s dollars on vacation and supporting green businesses makes her feel happier. I will miss this couple. Guests do not usually affect me this way, but we experienced a real connection, innkeeping at its best!
