Mackinac Island

Only in Michigan is Mackinaw and Mackinac pronounced the same way.  Either way we went to Mackinac (pronounced Mackinaw) Island today. The island doesn't have any cars and people can only commute on horse buggy, or bike.  It was out of our way but we thought Anne would like all the horses. Sure enough it was her favorite part!  We took the ferry over in the morning after we dropped our laundry off at a laundromat. We took a horse drawn carriage ride to the new butterfly conservatory, ate lunch at the Grand Hotel (my favorite part), explored, took the buggy through the state park and back to the main street.  We had just missed the ferry back, so we went to the playground outside the fort.  At the camp site, we watched the sunset and the lights come on the bridge.
