                              Hello Douglas and Saugatuck, Michigan

The weather today, well it might rain but then again we are living in a new temperate zone, the weather is considerable warmer, the days are real long, we went to a solstice party the other night where they asked everyone to write down a wish and then they hang them from their x-mas tree (last years) in the backyard and lit a bonfire. While I can't tell you what my wish was, it involved all of us and was super positive!


Looking for something to do?

Music in the Park-downtown Saugatuck, 7-9 p.m. with Sam and Andy a Folk/Rock duet that will keep you entertained, bring your lawn chairs and blankets, a picnic too!

Exhibitions
The award-winning Saugatuck-Douglas Museum has unveiled its 2010 exhibit: A Place Called Ox-Bow: 100 Years of Connecting Art, Nature, and People. Saugatuck's "Ox-Bow" is a site of many human and natural wonders: culture, nature, landscape, and waterscape, all unfolding from the Lake Michigan shoreline to the Kalamazoo River and the old Village of Saugatuck. This exhibit is about how for a century the Ox-Bow School has been a bridge between nature and art for thousands of people, comprising an important chapter in the history of the lakeshore and its dunes. This exhibit is open daily, noon to 4 p.m., until Labor Day, and on the weekends only in the fall. Admission is free. For more information, call 269-857-7901 or visit http://sdhistoricalsociety.org/.

Did someone mention the beach or Lake Michigan again, of course you can take a long walk along the wide sandy beaches of Lake Michigan and smile at the greatness of the big pond. Why not visit the Saugatuck Dunes State Park (bring some water-it's a hot one today) and take a long walk through the woods, it will be just beautiful.
