Okay… this is going to seem like a random post… but.. such is my life sometimes. I’ve been a little behind with blogging and I completely skipped chatting about my trip to the island back in February… and then last week I was in Hawaiii… so hence the title within one month I went from snow covered below zero weather of Mackinac Island… to 85 degree palm tree covered island of Hawaii…. (obviously I have an island thing.. I love them whether hot or cold) .. there is just something about the island life…
So… My Presidents Day-Valentines Day-Chili Cookoff weekend on Mackinac…. It was an island first for me… flying into the island in the dead of winter… granted I was hoping to experience the infamous ice-bridge… but to no luck …this winter the lake never froze… needless to say even without the usual freedom TRUE islanders look forward to year round… most were still in high spirits … and ready for the annual Chili Cookoff (granted the three bars (Sinclairs, Mustang, & Village Inn) open helped with the dispersion of such
“spirits”)… but all was not lost, beautiful sunsets, great friends, and awesome chili was still to be found in abundance. As always, Mackinac never ceases to amaze and surprise me… even after ten years I constantly discover new joys on the is Magical place.
(You’ll notice the last pic is a collage of people.. these are just a few islanders that always make me smile and keep the island going year round when the rest of us are scared of the winter … a few are missing (you, for example Mary… how were you not in any of my pics :-)… but I just wanted to pay props to these awesome people who always welcome me anytime of year. also… Heather & Chris… you’ll be soooo missed!!!)
It was so fun to be on another island… its amazing the similarities… (I know you think I’m crazy)… but its true…
So… these pics are some of my travel images…. as of Sunday I’ll be hopping on a plane heading to Europe… keep checking back to see some pics from the trip as I country hop a little bit
