Tranquil Moments

It is 7:00 a.m. and I’m sitting at our desk in the lobby. My husband, Lynn,usually opens the lobby but is unable to this morning because he has the flu. I’ve been running the motel for the last two days while he recuperates.
The coffee is brewed. The water is hot for tea and cocoa. Everything is ready for our guests to get their caffeine fix.
This is a peaceful time of day. I look out the office window at the bridge. The lights are still on. A pink ray of light washes over the pool deck indicating a beautiful day ahead. The winds, from the northwest, are blowing enough to wake the water up and roll the waves ashore. A freighter is sneaking by under the bridge. The loons and geese are bathing and fishing in the straits. Every now and then the loons voice is gently carried through the morning air. Most of my guests are sleeping peacefully. Soon they will be wandering around, with coffee in hand, enjoying all the peace and beauty of the morning on the Straits of Mackinaw. Some stroll the beach. Others jog or take a brisk walk. Everyone will enjoy the peace and beauty of this fall like morning.
If you need some tranquil moments, (and who doesn’t?), do yourself a favor and come up for a visit. You’ll be glad you did. Visit us at or call me at 231-436-5577.
