Good Morning Douglas and Saugatuck, Michigan Yes folks, what a great day it's going to be here here and at Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast and Saugatuck, Michigan. Today in West Michigan it will be partly Sunny. The Temperature will be mid to high 70's, with some nice wind. A day to go body surfing at Lake Michigan or just venture down and see what the the ocean looks like with some wind at it's back. Great day to go hiking at the state park if the beach doesn't cooperate, lunch at Coral gables and do some fun people watching. Went to the a small beach party last night, the sunset was just spectacular and breath-taking, we then had a fire, cooked up some smore's and enjoyed some great conversation. A perfect end to a perfect day. This is such a magical area. Went for a another bike ride along Lakeshore Drive this morning to the washout before breakfast. The lake is getting fired up for it's windy day. The pool is about 83 degrees and the retro Schwinn Suburban's are tuned up and ready to go.
