It’s official! This morning at 6:44 AM spring arrived at Lake of the Ozarks.The Bradford pears along the Inn’s drive way and just outside the solarium’s dining room window are in full bloom! Absolutely gorgeous. . .The jonquils are nodding in the sunshine and we’re ALL ready to chase away any cold nights who dare to sneak up on us now! Come check out our spring colors.
The Lake is a great place to be – anytime of year, but especially now when we’re all so hungry for sunshine, mild temps and good news.
One of the “rites” of spring here at the Lake is the beginning of snagging season. What a sight to see! Fishermen used heavy-duty fishing poles equipped with large sinkers and even larger hooks and throw their lines into the Osage River, below Bagnell Dam. The line sinks to the bottom of the river and then the fisherman sweeps it back hoping to “snag” a paddlefish ~ anywhere on his body. Are you ready for this? Paddlefish date back to prehistoric times and are one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen! Come see what snaggin’ season is all about!
If you like innside fun, check out the 30th annual Lake of the Ozarks Products and Services Show on Saturday and Sunday< March 21st and 22nd, at the Country Club Hotel in Lake Ozark, MO. It’s the largest trade show of its kind in Central Missouri. Free parking, free shuttle service and free admission.
Mid-April will bring blooming service berry trees in the Ozark woods, followed by the dogwoods. Something you won’t want to miss! Why not call now for your getaway reservation at the Inn at Harbour Ridge?
Happy spring; Happy hearts!
