Michigan IV.5= Macinaw Island
Just got back from our two day trip to Mackinaw Island. We drove for 4 hours on the road from Muskegon to Mackinaw City. We stayed in a suite at the Clarion Hotel. In the morning, we caught a ferry to the island. Have any of you seen the movie "Somewhere in Time"? Well, if you have, that's where that movie was made. We went to the Grand Hotel (Didn't stay there... it is WAY too expensive) and explored, say a few horses crud on the sidewalk, and saw this GORGEOUS town. We went up to Fort Mackinaw, where the soldiers would stay in the 1800's. AFter that and thousands of pictures, we caught the ferry back to the mainland and drove home in Grandpa's truck for 4 hours. Now I'm back here, and all I want to do is sit on the couch and read my book, you guessed it, Somewhere in Time.
