We’ve had a slow and cold spring, but summer is finally here, and business has been brisk. Sorry to our new and returning customers if you’ve called us and found no vacancies available. We’re already completely booked for many weekends in June and July.
This week, the hoped-for annual Hex Hatch brings fly fishermen (and women!) from all over. The Big Ticket Festival in Gaylord is also happening this week. With these two events we’re almost entirely sold out Wednesday till Sunday.
Many birdwatchers have visited this year, looking for the Kirtland Warbler. We’ve heard good reviews on the tours offered every morning. Last week we had a group of guests from southern Texas talking with another guest from Sweden, discussing who was ‘serious’ about birdwatching.
Road construction continues in Grayling, with the main bridge over the Ausable river downtown closed and the North Down River Road bridge also closed. Detour signs are posted and better than they used to be. You can avoid the detours by entering and leaving Grayling from the north side, exit 259 on I-75.
Last weekend we visited Chicago. Every once in a while we take our children to the city so it will hopefully not be too alien an environment for them after they’re grown. We had a great weekend there, but after returning home to Grayling Stuart said: “Grayling smells much nicer than Chicago.”
