Washington Island businesses hoping for warmer weather

Townliner Motel owner and Washington Island Ferry captain Joel Gunnlaugsson hopes their next visitor is better weather. He estimates tourism numbers on Washington Island will be down in May because of the cool temperatures accompanied with rain. Traffic is starting to pick up thanks to school being out of session, something Gunnlaugsson says local businesses are excited to see.

Gunnlaugsson believes the real season kicks off this weekend when the Wisconsin Council of Churches makes Washington Island its home base June 24th through 28th.
