Whoa. I keep forgetting to update and post photos.

Nic and I went to Mackinac Island the last weekend in June. We stayed overnight at Straits State Park in St. Ignace. Beautiful campground! I reserved a site right on the straits and we had a fire with the Mighty Mac glowing in the background. 

We rode bikes from the campsite into downtown St. Ignace and explored a little bit. You could call us Fudgies! The mayflies were insane! We hardly talked on the entire bike ride because you couldn’t open your mouth. It was literally a wall of bugs. We had a good time though.

I have been to the island more times than I can count, but it was Nic’s first time. So of course we had to do all of the touristy stuff. We brought our mountain bikes and biked around the island. We also explored the inland a little bit, trying to find some trails. We found some, but they were not that impressive. We went to Arch Rock and Skull Cave. The first part of the day was cold and rainy, but it cleared up later on. We ate at Mary’s Bistro for lunch. It was a short trip, but fun. I would like to stay overnight on the island sometime, but it is so expensive!

Another little day trip that Nic and I took this summer, was to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Our friend, Marc, is a park ranger there and is living in a cabin on Lake Superior. It was a chilly night, but we bundled up and walked the beach. Fueled by delicious Johnny Dog’s in Munising, we enjoyed our peaceful evening.
