Mackinac in April

Hey all,

It’s been awhile since my last post, and that’s because I’ve really been focusing a lot on work. The fudge shops will be opening in a couple of weeks now and I’m in the process of setting up the stores for opening day (and I’ll actually be down there today, too!) Anyway, I wanted to bring you a few photos of Mackinac Island this April… some are from early April when there was still ice in the water… And most are from a little boating trip that I took with my sister and her boyfriend, paddling around the docks. 37 more words

Back to work

It was a busy first week back on the Island. I spent most of my days cleaning in the shop but I always try to make time to get outside and enjoy the view.    24 more words

Michigan's Mackinac Island - Scenic, Romantic and Bike-a-licious!

Mackinac (pronounced mak’ in aw) Island is one of the gems of America, a 3.8-square mile preserved historic paradise where so many mid-westerners have honeymooned. It’s located in Lake Huron at the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan, with a history spanning from Native American settlements to European fur traders, and then as the strategic Fort Mackinac during the American Revolutionary War. 466 more words

Mackinac Memories 4/12/15

I was fretting this morning about there really being nothing to write about today, and when that happens my mind automatically turns to Mackinac.  In the six summers Ted and I lived on the island for the season, I can count on one hand the number of times when I honestly couldn’t come up with a subject.  1,390 more words

Afloat

When I saw that this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge was about “Afloat” the first things that come to mind are fluffy white clouds and boats sailing on sparkling blue water. 16 more words
