Michigan - The Big Mitt

Bob's and Karen's Place
We are staying here at Jeff's brother and sister's place.  They have acreage and we are staying on part of it.  Took the RV down and got a three receiver hitch put on.  Jeff and Bob also put in slide out drawers for me in my kitchen.  Yeah!!!

There is plenty of tree color right here on their property.  Couldn't get a picture without Starr in it.  She is having way too much fun.  Karen walks her all the time (for miles) and Starr loves it.

There are turkeys I am seeing other than Jeff.
Mackinac Island
We went over to the island with our bicycles and rode around the island.  There is a bicycle path all the way around.  Took the ferry over there.  No cars are allowed, just horses and bicycles.  You can catch the horse and buggy, rent a bicycle, take your own bicycle, or walk.  Here's the ferry we took over.
This is called Devil's Kitchen.
And this natural made arch is along the bike path also.
Colonial Michilimackinac Park and the Mackinac Bridge
This is the fort at the base of the Mackinac Bridge.  The fort was originally built here by the French and then the British took it over and moved it to Mackinac Island.  I wanted to show off the bridge first.  It is five miles long and connects the UP and the Mitt parts of Michigan.
More pictures of the fort.  This cannon is fired several times a day.

  1. Nice drawers. So much better than reaching inside to find something. Love the scenery
