Here is another "THING" that a camper recently said....
I have a hummingbird feeder right by my office window and there are usually at least a couple of hummers fighting over their rightful place.
So, as I was checking in this gal, she said "OH!!! Look at the beautiful hummingbirds at that feeder! Do you have hummingbirds here?" Hmmmmm...yep I think we do if you see them at the feeder.
Boy, where have all the tourists gone??? Has everyone left da U.P?? There is hardly any traffic on the road and we've only been 46% occupied the past couple of nights!! At least it IS better than last year at this time; last year we were only 16% occupied for this same weekend! This summer HAS been better than last year for camping AND lodging. Motels in town seem to be doing pretty well, it sounds like restaurants are crowded, the owner of the Pizza Place said this has been on of his busiest seasons. Hopefully, when fall colors come on there will be MORE people coming up. AND WITH THAT GROUP CANCELLING, WE STILL HAVE WATER AND ELECTRIC SITES LEFT FOR LABOR DAY! OH, AND ABOUT 5 RUSTIC SITES.
We have quite a few reservations for September and a handful into the first part of October. Bear hunters are making reservations, guys are inquiring about bow hunting season for deer....all of that is right around the corner!
Well, Dan has cabin cleaning duty today so that means I better get busy with the cabin laundry so we're ready for the next batch of guests!
Hope you are having a great weekend!
