Kiteboarding Mecca

The wind has really been something the last few days.  Time to go to Frankfort Beach to see the crazies out on the water with their kites.  The waves were crashing around the lighthouse, the sun was shining and there were the most beautiful cartoon clouds in the sky.

As usual, click on the pictures to see them larger…

Lake Michigan and Dinner

Pictures today of Lake Michigan “behaving” a little more active than it has been in the last few weeks

As usual, at the end of Grace Road.

Someone had a nice fire last night

That’s Tina Noffsinger waving. She was on her way to Frankfort – it’s the annual Twilight Sale in town.
Great deals to be had all over the place including at Hull’s Clothing

And then I went home and made my dinner

Tomato, Eggplant and Brussels Sprouts with a little lemon juice and salt to taste. Yummmers

Musings of an Innkeeper

Looks like we have to wait for spring a little bit longer.  The weatherman predicts more snow for the weekend. Yikes. No matter what, the cottages are ready and the first guests, fishermen, will arrive on April 7th – all the way from Texas!  Hard to believe that this will be our 15th season coming up.  I always look forward to that first guest as it forces me to get into character and come out of my hibernation. This year I had Cindy help me open up the cottages and get them ready.  That was a nice treat for me who has to do all that cleaning work during the season. There is a lot of yard cleaning to be done.  For some reason a million leaves are still all over the lawns.  I thought we had cleaned that all up before the snow started. Apparently I must have been dreaming.  I called Pudd Ness to come and do some clean-up work for me,  hopefully he won’t make me wait too long.  Because this is how I like my front lawn to look:

Benzie County kids are on spring break until Monday, April 6th.  It is a bit quiet in town as everyone seems to have fled to warmer climates. Our winter has been extremely long this year.  My 2 boys and husband are out of town to soak up some sun too. My son Marc and husband Mike went to see Marc’s godfather in Arizona and Ty was invited by his friend Zach’s family to join them in Ft. Lauderdale for a week at the beach.
