back!

We loved Mackinac Island!

It was like stepping back in time...an island with no motorized vehicles....

Not even a golf cart!

Can you imagine it?

Some day I hope we can come again...and perhaps stay here

That would be so nice...

Go again the end of May, beginning of June when the lilacs bloom!
Beautiful, and the smell is amazing!

And thank you for helping out the suffering Michigan economy.

Have you seen the movie Somewhere in Time? Filmed at the grand hotel...its a gorgeous setting!

Didn't you just love it? Hubs and I 'honeymooned' there on our second anniversary and it was wonderful. We are big fans of 'Somewhere in Time', so we just had to stay at The Grand. There was a wedding going on at the time, and the wedding party was dressed in the period of SiT. Truly magical!

And the fudge, oh my, the fudge!

We spent several hours just laying on the side of the hill (where a lot of people picnic) watching everybody go by. I remember how peaceful it was and I'd do it again in a minute.

So glad you loved it too.

So glad you came to Michigan for you vacation. We are a "Great" place for summer vacations. (get it...Great Lakes. I crack myself up.)

I've never actually got to stay at the Grand Hotel, but hope to some day as well.

I want some of those smores snacks. Yum.

Welcome back! Michigan is lovely. Being from Chicago (originally) my family would often go there for summer vacations. I was thinking of you today - scores some fabulous 1940's 50's shoes and thought "Amy would love these!" (even though they weren't pink!)
