Tuesday, October 5, 2021:  The day was overcast, but Mark and Paula headed to Mackinaw Island.
The ferry captain was a happy guy.      

They made land at Mackinaw Island a half hour later.

Hmmm horses and bicycles.  NO automobiles.

That's right.  One and two horsepower public transportation.

With horses comes you-know-what on the streets.  There are workers hired to clean it up!

Lots of bicycles, many carrying tourist luggage.

There is a park named after Father Jacque Marquette.  Lady Liberty stands guard over the nearby port.

The island is know for its great fudge.  Birds like chocolate too.

Horses everywhere.

Beach Comber Paula spent time looking for rocks.

Local birds were looking after her.

Then it was over to the Mission Point Resort for a room.

There was dinner and piano music along with a warm fire.

After sunset at the resort.  The movie Somewhere in Time, was played at the resort theatre that night. 
It was filmed at Mackinaw Island in 1980.

Quote of the day:    A great tourist day.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
