Mackinaw City

Went to Mackinaw City last weekend.

Stayed at Mill Creek Campground.

And a LARGE Campground it was!
600 sites!
Was quite busy despite gas at 3.17 a gal.

Here's me in our tight campsite.

This park had the smallest sites

of any park we've been at.

But enough room for our awning and chairs.

We had a great view of the

bridge from the campground.

We had a mile of shoreline at this park.

It is located about

4 miles south east of the city.

This is a pic of me and our friends from

Wisconsin, Dean and Tom.

They have a fifth wheel.

We did all thee tourist things.

Went to mackinaw City,

over the bridge to St Ignace,

and took the ferry to Mackinaw Island.

It's been years since I've been to the island,

but it's the same as I remember it,

lots of fudge and t-shirt shops.

But it's still a beautiful island with

beautiful buildings and flowers. And as you can see, very busy! And do you believe,

$20 for a round trip ferry ride!

Fortunately, we had some

free passes given to me!

We even saw a freighter go

by the island while we were there.

All in all, we had a good time.
