Phew, this was the weekend from H-E-double hockey sticks as far as the weather was concerned. Here at the Wayfarer we had all the cottages filled with wedding guest and had only 2 cottages full of fishermen who couldn’t go out on the water and partake in the tournament. Other places like LuAnn’s BayPort Lodging or the R & R Motel had so many of the guys check out and leave town, they actually turned some rooms over 3 times this weekend. Oh the stress. Yesterday, the Ladies part of the tournament was scrapped due to 6 foot swells.
I went for a ride into Frankfort, around 9 o’clock this morning, to see what was going on and wow, there were so many boats not in the water but in the parking lot by the launch. Fishermen pacing back and forth, talking with each other – I felt bad. I have to ask Mike if they get their entry fees back if the weather stops them from holding the event.
I took pictures of what I saw all over town. Oh and I should not forget to tell you that I went to the bakery and got doughnuts for the men and more of their scrumptious rustic bread.

Miranda Music where Tyler is taking all his money to buy guitars and where he is learing to play the guitar from Bogar.
Bogar is from Bogota, Colombia – a former member of the Bogota Philharmonic Orchestra. He plays every instrument under the sun and he is so pationate about his music.

The Frankfort Deli is painted so beautifully. The owner was in the midst of painting this building when the movie was filmed in the bakery. The movie people wanted the building back in it’s original condition and color, so they paid to have it painted blue-grey again until filmimg was done. Later it turned orange again. I love the way it looks, don’t you?
