Getting ready to embark!
We're almost there! We parked in Mackinac City and took a ferry to the island.
Modes of transportation.
Showing off for my husband.
Mission Point Resort - where we stayed.
Look at all that fudge. And look at the intensity all that fudge requires!
Round Island Lighthouse.
On a walk - Doug & Mackinac Bridge
Out for a drive.
Doug & I rented 1-speed bikes and rode around the island. We took turns trying to take pictures while we were riding...
North side of the island.
Saturday morning mini golf. Doug clearly takes all golf very seriously. I think my picture shows how seriously I take it.
Saturday afternoon hike. This was almost a cute picture, but then I remembered that if I'm in a picture without sunglasses, I need to be squinting or blinking. I think I got a little of both in this shot.
Path through the woods.
Naturally we had a photo shoot.
"Pretend you don't see me."
Arch Rock from the top.
What you see in this picture is Doug standing very close to the edge, looking at the awesome scenery. What you don't see in this picture is me whimpering, hanging onto a tree, begging him not to get so close to the edge.
In this picture, I am assessing my odds of tumbling over the precipice, crashing through trees and dying. I also distinctly remember thinking, "At least I'll die in a cute outfit."
I overcame my fear and got some awesome pics of the amazing view.
Love you, babe. Thanks for the awesome trip & all the fun memories. Happy 1 year.
