It Really Is a Small World

Tonight Mike and I decided to go to the beach  in Frankfort and see the waves and kite boarders.

We did:

Kite boarding1

Frankfort Beach 2

…and then we decided to visit a few of our favorite watering holes.

So we went to the Stormcloud Brewing Company first, then to Dinghy’s and on our way back to the car,

we stopped in at Coho.  And that is where the fun started.  As we walked in, Jess, the bar tender, said

“There is Iris!”

and the group that was occupying the bar area went nuts.

“Ummmmm,  thanks for the warm welcome, peeps but what’s going on?”

Come to find out that they, from New England, had read my review of the Coho on
Four Square and went to see if it was what I said it was.

We had fun!

Small world indeed

Now You See It…

Now you see it

with Douglas David the artist who first made an oil painting of the cottages a couple of years ago and then had the grand idea of turning this fabulous painting into a new roadside sign for us.

And let me tell you, this is saying it all:

We are

Wayfarer Lodgings

and we are not the norm

Douglas’ paintings are sold at Betsie Bay Furniture, at the Garden Theater in downtown Frankfort, at McBeth in Onekama, as well as online at his website.

Yep, it’s that time again

I cannot not show off these beautiful little jewel boxes.  This year most of the flowers came from Crystal Gardens…

# 8 a.k.a. The Sandpiper which was the stepchild this year.  All the “leftovers” went into it but the 2 bunnies seem to be enjoying themselves 😉
