A ride in a 1954 Jeep

Today was an exciting day for a couple of our smallest guests.  Ted Bahry, a longtime friend, came to visit in his Jeep, and two little boys got the ride of their lives.  Ted is a retired Marine who had extensive work done on this 1954 vehicle and it shows.

See for yourself

Bicycling along Lake Michigan

A few weeks ago we had guests who were into bicycling.  They had bikes for every circumstance.  Just look at these.

Here Lisa and Matt are on their way to Arcadia, having started from Elberta Beach
That would be a 13 mile bike ride along the Lake Michigan shoreline !

And back up north to Wayfarer Lodgings

Tim Allen should be talking about this in one of his Pure Michigan commercials.

Does this not look like fun?

The Trouble with Bathroom Accoutrements

Of course you can imagine that we have guests who show up every year like clock work and quite often several times a year.  We love these guests because they feel like family coming to see us.
The following guest blogger Rusty and his wife – Beth – are just such guests.

“When we arrived at Wayfarer Lodgings, we found that our toilet paper holder was taken apart. The rod was sitting on the sink ledge. There was a conspicuous absence of the bathroom product. All we could figure was that Iris was experimenting with a new way to encourage guests to pay upon arrival. No pay-no paper. Since we always pay soon after arrival, this was not a problem for us. Neither of us were dealing with urgent biological issues. We strolled over to the office, paid our due, and requested a couple of rolls of toilet paper. Iris wasn’t sure whether she should be horrified that she had left the situation for us to find, or pleased that she had discovered a way to encourage guests to pay upon arrival.As an aid to our friend Iris, we left two rolls of toilet paper purchased at the local supermarket on the kitchen table. Maybe she had mercy on the guests who followed us.

Rusty”
 

This is not the only thing I forget but it is one of the more important things I forget.  Sometimes it’s the coffee that gets forgotten, sometimes it’s the towels or the soaps but I forget to place enough toilet paper in the cottages most of the time.

I forget so often that Mike once told a guest “If she forgets again, she’ll be fired”.   That guest looked shocked 😯  He thought that he had gotten me into trouble with the boss.  Need I tell you that I am Large Marge in Charge?

I am sure can understand that I was shocked to see this morning that one of my newly planted flower boxes had fallen down on the job.

I couldn’t believe it and neither could the little Pekin Duck.
