Day 2 on the Island...

While Chris and the girls took off on bikes this morning to tour the island, my walking cast and I took up residence in on the front lawn of Mission Point resort.

2 hours of complete and utter silence.
Pure HEAVEN!


Arch Rock

Such beautiful water

While on the island, the girls robbed a bank.
Gotta love Josie's serious face.


I swear I'm bringing home one of these chairs.

Such gorgeous views of Lake Huron


We've had a splendid time on Mackinac Island. We're leaving tomorrow and heading to the Upper Peninsula. More fun awaits.

XOXO

That pic of Emma is gorgeous. I do hope you have quite the cast tan...When we went to the UP we stayed north of Houghton on the East coast of the penn. But spent daily drives going from beach to beach. Beautiful memories...smiles...Renee

Ohhhhh, I love Mission Point Resort! We stayed there once and it was so beautiful. :) So glad you are able to enjoy it even though you can't go biking. Thanks for posting the pics. I love seeing all those familiar sites. :)

Hi Kim,
Hope you and your cast are doing ok! I can almost hear the clip clop of the horses on the island! I think that is one of my very favorite things about it, no cars! I am in love with the UP, hope you have a great time there. Can't wait to hear where you are headed next! Are you going as far as Copper Harbor?
