Saturday, August 5, 2017:  Mark rode a ferry boat to Mackinac Island.

One thing about this place is that there are no cars.  Many get around by horse and buggy.

Some opt for bicycles to tour the place.

Horseback riding is also popular.

Historic downtown Mackinac was a busy place even though there are no cars. 
Bikes are a rental item.  How does one find the bike he or she parked before checking out a store or lunch?


Mackinac Island is famous for fudge.  Visitors see how it is made.

Fudge comes in many types and is cut into pieces just right in size. 

Entertainment is found in many establishments.  Just sing along, if you can.

The Island is fun for young and old alike.

Lots of photos taken everywhere.

There are some beautiful homes along with bed and breakfasts on the island too.

The local folks installed a Statue of Liberty to greet visitors as they come into port.

The port is chock full of boats.

Out on the water, hydro-boats were crossing the gap between the mainland and Mackinac Island.

Quote of the day:    Mackinac Island is a great place to visit.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
