Good Morning Douglas and Saugatuck, Michigan. The sunset over Lake Michigan was pretty cool last night, with the crisp clean air during fall, the stars are just beautiful.

Today in West Michigan! Widespread frost before 8am. Otherwise, increasing clouds, with a high near 62. Last night was....... brrrrrrr, it went down to 34. Great sleeping weather, had to get up and close the window a tad, sad to say the heat came on too.

Here at Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast, with the forecast calling for rain for a few days, it might be your last chance to take a quiet hike along the lake.

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

Catch the sunset, it will be around 7:26. The time slips away fast this time of year

Catch the movie FOOD, INC at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts, Sponsored by the SCA and Summertime Market. This hot documentary, comes to the SCA for a special screening! See why the New York Times says of Food, Inc., "You'll shudder, shake, and just possibly lose your genetically modified lunch". A panel of area farmers will share thier experinces, talk about why "field to table" eating is so important. 7:00 pm Goodwill donation, panel discusson following the film.

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