Comments people leave in vacation rental guest books fascinate me. What made the highlight reel for their vacation and how did it differ from the experiences of others who have visited the same location?

This picture was taken of an entry in the guestbook for the rental cabin my husband and I own. The guest wrote:

Also had a larges spider outside our kitchen window the first four nights. We named him George. We turned on the light to draw bugs, and he took care of them. Didn’t see him the last few nights, we missed him. 😦


My favorite part of this is that, despite all the entertainment options, this guest enjoyed something so simple as befriending a spider. Instead of commenting about the hot tub, air hockey table, or arcade games, (s)he found the beauty in the instinctual habits of bugs.

 What’s your favorite part of nature?
