As I walked up to Hummingbird (#6 for all who have stayed at the Wayfarer), a card was clipped to the door addressed to “Iris”.
“Dear Iris, I figured you would never forget the two ladies who traveled all the way from Florida for a wedding that got cancelled the day of.” –
Indeed, I will not forget these ladies, a mother and daughter who could not have been nicer, more appreciative or happy. They made the best of the situation and enjoyed this beautiful area.
I may forget what is on my personal calendar some days, but I rarely forget a guest.
I know – strange, LOL
Once it warms up, I get happy because the guests are starting to sit outside, eat, drink and read.
That is what it’s all about.
My little helpers are back
This has been my most wonderful summer since we came to live in Michigan. Thanks to my reliable little helper Kamrie and some of her compadres for cleaning for me and Mike quitting his job. Of course it helped that we had only enjoyable guests (almost) this year. What a treat.
I have been able to enjoy my front porch more then ever before. What fun to sit there and wave back at the “wavers” in the cars going by.
Ahhhh, a front porch, who needs anything else?!
I must say, thinking about this last season, this area sure has changed and then again it stayed the same. The folks that come to enjoy themselves here are very much interested in keeping the area pristine and they really are “into the nature thing”, lol.
Water sports are definitely pushing hard to be the No.1 activity these days. Hiking and biking are not far behind. Of course that doesn’t mean that just plain old “laying on the beach” is no longer important. We’ve had many couples staying with us specifically to lay around on the beach and get chocolate brown before having to go back to work.
Long story short, Thanks everyone for a most enjoyable season, for your business, for your friendship. We hope you went back home refreshed and feeling well and that your tank is full until you can come to Benzie County again :heart:
Heehee, one really bad picture but there you have it – The Front Porch
