Turkey Shoot

Traveling along Grace Road today, I saw this bunch.   Altogether there were about 15 of them.
By the time I got the car stopped and that camera whipped into shape, they had escaped into the woods.

I know that it’s not a great picture. You try it in the middle of the road, standing there while another car comes careening down the hill behind you.  I took my little life into my hands for this picture!  So stop complaining, gang 😛

Stormy Weather

This was a day for hot chocolate (with rum) and comfort foods – not that it’s cold.  The winds are howling, blowing, sending rain. A lot of rain.

I love fall, most of you know that.  This is a very welcome event, as today the first, big storm of the season started.  It is widespread and it seems, dare I say it, that we are among the very lucky for not having any power problems.


These first couple or so were taken at the Elberta outlook. The Frankfort lighthouse is on the right

This picture was taken down below the Elberta lookout, right by the old Lifesaving Station

All these pictures and about 35 more are in the collection down below.  Click on each of them to see them better.


Wasn’t that amazing?

Remedy for a Bad Mood

heehee, we had dogs at the Wayfarer this summer.  Sadly I don’t have pictures of all of them.

Murphy who always comes with Susan

Chance who came with Lynn and Alan

And then there is young Betsie who brought with her Joyce.
You guessed right if you thought that she was named after the Betsie River/Betsie Lake (correct me if this is wrong, Joyce)

And Jinx – she loved it here. It was her first but certainly not last visit 🙂

There were many others but I forgot to take pictures of them.  I was busy…

Comedy of Errors

Oh dear, I don’t even know how to begin.  We had quite the weekend. We were bussssssy.  Have I got an adventure to tell you about…

Names of 2/3 of the participants have been changed, because I don’t remember them 😆

As most of you know, cottages 1, 2 and 3 are interchangeable and sometimes it works out better for the calendar to move guests around among them.  This weekend it worked out better to put Nancy into cottage # 3 rather than # 1 where she was originally suppose to be.
Error # 1: I didn’t decide that, though, until after I had also rented cottages # 2 and 3 to a brother and sister, let’s call them Jack and Jill, to come in 2 days after Nancy –
Jack came in the afternoon to check into both #’s 1 and 2 ( I told him that I had changed the order) but he forgot to tell Jill about the change. Error # 2:  Jack should have taken the keys for 1 and 2 but didn’t. Had he taken the keys, Jill would have known which cottage was hers 😉

Nancy returns home, gets busy with something in her cottage # 3.
Error # 3: She closes the door and forgets to take the key out of the door.

Jack returns and makes himself  at home in cottage 1. He shnoozes and possibly snores comfortably in his cozy cottage.
Jill finally gets home around 2 AM and promptly goes to “her” cottage.  She turns the key and finds Nancy in her bed ? 😯

Finally, I was told on Sunday morning, things got straightened out and all was well. Jill now knows that her cottage is #2.

🙂   Good Night everyone   🙂

But wait, here comes problem # 4.  No heat in Jill’s cottage!   Jill’s cottage was cold.  It appeared as though the last guest had taken the heater with him, hehe.
Sheesh, first a lot of my pillows disappear from the cottages all summer long and now heaters are absconded with.  Nothing is safe anymore…

Thank goodness Nancy missed her cottage key and got dressed to retrieve it from Jill who had taken it with her rather than leaving it with Nancy. This was a actually a good thing, because Nancy located the baseboard heater for Jill!

I hope you could keep up with this convoluted story

What a fun story to wake up to and giggle about on a sunny Sunday morning, coffee in hand…
This could have gone seriously wrong with less easy going guests
