Good morning Douglas and Saugatuck, Michigan 

The weather today, funny you should ask, beach day, did some one say beach day, yup. Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, partly sunny, with a high near 83. West northwest wind between 6 and 9 mph. Looks like another awesome day here in the Forest, looking for a quick rendezvoux, we have one room left for tonight. You can surprise your lover other with romance, no better way to start the day?

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

The Beach
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.
