We woke to a glorious sunrise over Mackinac Island.
After breakfast we watched as the The Felicity docked.
Clouds masked the sun. A bumpy beginning as we swung out of the harbor.
Feisty winds kept the ferry bell ringing nearly constantly throughout our trip.
We selected the “Mighty Mac Departure,” a special ferry trip which would veer out of the normal direct path to Mackinac Island. As we prepared to leave the dock, our captain warned us that the waves were likely too choppy for that extra bridge loop, but thankfully, the waves acquiesced to our wishes 🙂
We’ve crossed the Mackinac Bridge many times, but this vantage point was a first for us.
Peering directly up through the grates.
Windy, but worthwhile.
Finally approaching the island, that long white building is the famous Grand Hotel.
More of Mackinac Island in my next post.
