We headed out near sunrise towards the USA. We only crossed over for a few hours. We took the ferry boat out to Mackinac Island (pronounced Mackinaw, silent C?). Some of the ferry boats went super fast. We had picked the more leisurely pace boat.
When on the island, we opted to take a private carriage ride around the island. We had a great, knowledgable guide who told us the history of the island as well as information about those people that call it their summer home.
We saw the Grand Hotel with itâ€™s 600 foot front porch.
And views of the marina from the Eastern Cliffs.
After our carriage ride we walked Market Street and sampled enough fudge to make us all sick in the tummy. I bought a slab of mint chocolate for later.
We had a near private ferry back to the mainland. We enjoyed lunch out, a rare treat.
No problems getting back into Canada on the International Bridge. We got back and I swam for 2.5 hours while Mom did laundry. I worked on my handstands and was under water most of the time. Emmerson too a long nap and is finally feeling a bit better, thank goodness! He was super grumpy.
