Michigan Adventures - Mackinac Island, Part 1

Heading over the famous Mackinac Bridge.

Mark is ready to go to the island!

There it is off in the distance!

Riding the ferry.

Looking back at the bridge.

The island gets closer.

There's the Grand Hotel!

A picturesque lighthouse.

The sight which first greeted us upon arrival.

Like a step back in time.  
No vehicles are permitted on the island except emergency vehicles.  
Bicycles and horse-drawn carriages are available for transportation, however.

Nathan at one of the many fudge shops.  Check out that expression on his face!


Making fudge.

A stone chapel on the way up the hill to the Grand Hotel.

Heading off to fetch a customer and their luggage.

Isn't it grand?

The gardens at the Grand Hotel.

This was as close as we could get without being a registered guest or buying an entrance admission.
Simply stunning!

Stay tuned for the next post in which we bike around the island! :)

You had to post that picture of the double dark fudge to make us jealous, didn't you?!? Lol!
