Northern Michigan Trip Report

Memorial Day weekend we took our first northern Michigan trip which did not include visiting family or settling family affairs. The 6 day trip included the Fort Michilimackinac Pageant, Mackinaw Memorial Parade, one night on Mackinac Island, the Tunnel of Trees, and an evening in the Leelanau Peninsula. The highlights of the trip were touring two Coast Guard Cutters and a chartered flight to photograph 17 lighthouses.

My long trip report with well over 100 photos is at http://www.mightymac.org/mackinacisland2013/

Linda says "Hi," tyme!

I finally met my third TA forum user. Last week, RedRox and spouse stopped overnight in our area on their way to Chicago & Harbor Springs and we met for supper. It was a real treat.

Glad to hear, Light. RR and Mrs. RR are lots of fun and interesting people. Along with M&M, too--LOL.

I guess I should say those are their two doggies! :)

I was a little surprised to walk into the restaurant where we met them, and find M&M at the table:-)

Wow! I don't know what impressed me more the pictures or the site you made of your trip. I have a hard time attaching a picture to a TA review ;-)
