Mackinac Island

Jim and I, and some friends, recently spent several nights on Mackinac Island. We had such a lovely time!

We took the ferry over, enjoying the view of Mackinac Bridge.

We saw horses, pulling carriages and taxis and drays and even street cleaners.

My favorite part, I think, was biking around the island. It was so beautiful.

We had lunch at the Grand Hotel - a delicious buffet! - and enjoyed walking around their grounds afterwards.

We enjoyed the butterfly conservatory.

We also did lots of relaxing, knitting, walking, napping, chatting, dining, window shopping.....

We loaded more pictures here, for those with insomnia. Enjoy!


  1. I love Mackinac Island and am glad that you went up there. What a beautiful place.

  2. Horse pulling street cleaners. Now that makes good sense.

  3. That's a dorky picture of your husband at the Grand Hotel, but the camera doesn't lie. It also doesn't like me--I've never looked good in photos. Sorry to be so dorky-looking.

  4. Now, it's not too dorky - and better than the one that had the lamp positioned over your head like a fez...!
