Mackinac Island Memories

I spent yesterday visiting Mackinac Island, which is a 3.8-square-mile island in Michigan. Located in Lake Huron, it’s at the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac, between the state’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas.

There are no motorized vehicles allowed, so most everyone walks, bikes or uses horse-drawn carriages to get around. We chose to bring our bikes along on the ferry from Mackinaw City and spent the day pedaling (literally) around the island sightseeing, shopping and dining.

My friend posted her photos this morning on Facebook, and her headline read: Friends + Bicycles + Fabulous Weather + Mackinac Island = Memories

That title perfectly sums up my day yesterday on Mackinac Island with my great friends Carrie and Elise. We’ve traveled all over the country and the world together over the past 15+ years, and this was one of those special days we will always remember and cherish.


  1. My husband and I spent a week on the island for our Honeymoon (twelve years ago this week actually!) and have visited several times since. It is indeed a special place…. fabulous pics… they are giving me the itch to go again! The fudge, the horses, the kites, the butterfly houses, the gardens, the homes, the crystal clear water, I could go on and on….

  2. Beautiful photos. Looks like you’re having a grand time with your friends, and hope you’re enjoying the horses.

    BTW, have a few photos from this past weekend’s horse show in CO and a couple stories for you. Will send around mid-August.

    • Thanks, Tina! I had a wonderful day there, too! You’ll appreciate this…I just downloaded some photos from today and realized I had even more Mackinac images on this card that I’d overlooked! I guess I took a lot of photos that day…I look forward to seeing your collection!
