First day on the island
And we're back! Thank you for all the wonderful wishes and happy thoughts sent our way--I give you guys all the credit for the beautiful weather we received. Thank you heaps!
Mackinac Island was wonderful. Cold, but full of sunshine and tulips and forsythia. I have a series of photos to show you, so stay tuned. These are from the first day on the island. We biked the 8 miles around the island and stopped for fudge and salt water taffy afterward--Ryba's has some of the best and their shop is all stripes and pink--gotta love that. There were tulips everywhere. Great big red and yellow tulips, like goblets, ready to soak up the sunshine. Near the east side of the island there's a large resort with a huge lush lawn that stretches out to Lake Huron. They set up dozens of white Adirondack chairs for their guests and random passerby's like us! We grabbed our afternoon coffee, picked out a pair of chairs and soaked up the sunshine. It was a delicious first day!
Tomorrow: Grand Hotel!
