Off Road Shenanigans

Some of our guests have reported seeing cars being driven right down at Grace Road Beach.  We were outraged and it seems so was everyone else that lives on the bluff.  Apparently this happens quite frequently these days because I just found a blog post by the Elberta Alert

“The Village Office has asked the Alert to announce that the following DNR RAP line is in place to receive reports of off-road and beach driving on Elberta Beach property and elsewhere along the shore and dunes. The fine for driving off the lot and gravel road that ends at the Sand Products property is $1,000. If you see a vehicle being operated on the beach or dunes, please ascertain the license plate number and call 800-292-7800. Driving off the designated road is a violation of federal, state, and Village law.”

Stay off our beach!  😦

Sky

We have some interesting skies here in Michigan.  I wish I knew how to take GOOD pictures of the sky.

This morning as I was messing around with my vacancy/no vacancy sign for the umpteenth time, I saw this:

the sky across Sis' field

Although it looked pretty dark and scary for a few minutes, the clouds went away and the sky is now a brilliant, lazy blue.
It rained hard last night. That’s how we like it. It is perfect for sleeping and in the morning everything has a fresh, clean new face and the guests can go and enjoy the beach or the dunes or the shops or, or, or…  🙂

And this evening this is what I saw in the north western sky

Oh look there’s a light on in cottage 7’s kitchen 😉
