Mackinac \ˈma-kə-ˌnȯ\ Island: Mackinac is an island located in Lake Huron just east of the Mackinaw Bridge (yes, they are spelled differently). It is a quaint step back in time - no cars - just bikes, horse drawn carriages, shops, bed and breakfasts and history. We bypassed the bikes and just walked part (fraction) of the 8 mile perimeter. We loved it! The kids enjoyed playing in the water. Abby thought we were great for buying her ice cream and Mike and I enjoyed the scenery and cool weather.
About the pictures: 1-2 UPS deliveries on Mackinac - the boat in the second picture is carrying the UPS truck; 3 Proof we were there (with kiddos who have chosen not to be seen); 4 Arch Rock; 5 Bikes, cute houses, etc.; 6 Abby posing in front of horse carriages; 7 Kids and I with the bridge in the background; 8 Cheesy face in another fun street shot; 9 Hotel from Somewhere in Time (good movie) - the picture was taken from the ferry - they charge to walk on the grounds; 10 - back on the mainland our first crossing of the Bridge
Highlights: 1 Abby's tree house - She asked us many times to put her into her "tree house" and she'd just sit there for several minutes - She loved it - Mike and I thought it looked slightly uncomfortable; 2-3 Point Iroquois Lighthouse; 4 The Soo Locks - These locks allow great big ships to travel between Lake Huron and Lake Superior - I believe it is a 21ish foot difference - It was pretty fascinating to watch the ships pull through and be raised and lowered; 5 Briton and Mike making dinner
