Thank you Catherine for enjoying your stay and your great suggestion on update my photos. Yes, we totally updated the house this spring, new paint, new furniture, new decorations, and new bedding.
The distance of the walk from the house to Spanish Bay is less than 0.5 miles. You are correct that the stretch of the bay is about 3 miles, and the Spanish bay beach is a bit further to the west. Will update and make it more accurate.
