On the way to Mackinac Island - Star Line Ferry

Saturday morning, we headed for the Island. It was a dreary day, rainy and foggy, but as living in Michigan teaches one, weather does not stay constant for long. So we took the chance and went for it. By the time we got to the ferry, the rain had stopped, and there was a kinda warm breeze blowing. So we sat at the front on the top deck.Above's the hotel we stayed at, pic taken from a shaky boat.

And above's the view as we're just leaving. While sitting up on top, the horn was sounded - dang was that loud!

Above, the tail spray, and below, the Mighty Mak bridge.

There are two lights as you approach the dock on the island....

And below, the ultra-posh Grand Hotel. More about that later.
