My Michigan Pictures!

Here are two of my favorite pictures from our mini vacation that I tried posting last night but Mr. Blogger didn't want to cooperate! Thank goodness he is being nice tonight!

One day we spent on Mackinac Island, we took our bikes and road 20 miles all over the island. For those who don't know about Mackinac Island it is an island that is 8.2 miles all the way around with trails going all over the island. It is like it's own little town, and no vehicles are allowed. The only vehicles on the island are the 2 ambulances and a couple fire trucks....otherwise their taxis are horse carriages or bikes. It was a lot of fun! I haven't been to the island since I was 14 years old so it was lots of fun to go back and see everything again.

Here is a picture of Arch Rock. It's a rock that is on a bluff that over look Lake Michigan on the one side of the island.
And the next picture is a picture of the Mackinaw Bridge taken from the island. The bridge is over 5 miles long and connects upper Michigan to lower Michigan. It was erie going over the bridge at first because you are so high in the air.
Hubby and I had a wonderful mini vacation, but we are glad to be home now too. Although that means that school is just around the corner :( Two weeks of vacation left and then it will be homework again. Ugh!

Tomorrow is the Embellish-It Farmer's Market Blog Hop! You don't want to miss this!!! It's going to be *Fresh*

Thanks for stopping by and hope you come back and say hi tomorrow!

Hi Kim,
Glad you had a great holiday. I take it that the strange background in the pictures is blue sky - we don't see too much of that in Scotland ha ha.
Hugs,

Kim, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to the island. I live on the island year-round and love it. I'm really glad you got to see the parts of the island outside of downtown - so many people just stay there and they miss so much!
