Good Morning Douglas and Saugatuck, Michigan. The sunset over Lake Michigan was spectacular last night.

Today in West Michigan! Completely sunny with temps in the hovering around 70. It's been great sleeping weather lately with the temps in the mid 40, windows wide open, awesome!!!

Here at Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast, it’ will be a decent beach day, hardly any wind, take a dip in the big lake, a walk along the lakeshore, sit by our cool pool, take one of the bikes for a leisurely ride into town and catch one of the last open days at the Red Dock Cafe in Douglas, they close right after Labor Day.

Looking for something to do, here are a few suggestions...

Catch the sunset tonight, it will be around 8:20, nice living on the western edge of the eastern time zone.

U-Pick
Head to Cranes Orchards, just one of West Michigan's U-Pick Apple Orchards (they might have some peaches left), is less than 7 miles from our front door. They have 14 different varieties, such as Gala, Macintosh, Honey Crisp, Cortland, Golden Supreme, Jonagold, Empire, Jonathans, Ida Reds, Golden Delicious, Mutsu, Red Delicious, Fuji, and Braeburn. For more info, call 269-561-8651 or visit http://www.craneorchards.com And there's also Earl's U-Pick Farm--through October 15, you can pick red or gold raspberries. For more info, call 269-227-2074 or visit http://www.earlsberries.com.

Why not hit the Saugatuck Dunes State Park and take a long walk through the woods, it will be just beautiful.

Breakfast this morning is Cheese and Potato Egg bake, Lemon Poppyseed muffins, watermelon slices, and of course Italian Espresso organic coffee (yes-free trade too).

From all of us here at Sherwood Forest, have a great Day!!!
