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 in the mid 70's. There will be incredible sleeping weather tonight , high in the 40's, windows wide open, awesome!!!

Here at Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast, it’ will be a great beach day, hardly any wind, take a cool dip in the big lake, a walk along the lakeshore, take one of the bikes for a leisurely ride into town and have lunch at Phil's bar and grill-they have the best hamburger in town. Then you can take a walk and watch the construction guys dig big holes in the sand.

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

Catch the sunset tonight, it will be around 7:50, days are getting shorter, just 5 days left of summer and I can guarentee that they'll all be good.

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 Veggie Quiche, Banana chocolate chip bread, fresh fruit salad, and of course Italian Espresso organic coffee (yes-free trade too).
