Great Lakes Tour – Day 10

WHERE: Sault Ste Marie -> via country road (Mackinac Trail) -> over the Mackinac Bridge -> to Shepler’s boat dock in Mackinac -> board boat -> Mackinac Island, Michigan

WEATHER: Rain, Rain, & more rain, completely overcast with clouds, 48*

We get up at 6, eat breakfast, and are ready to leave at 7:30. We are our little groups tour leader today. It is raining and we decide to stay off the main highway and go on the country road called Mackinac Trail. It is nice to not have the big truck traffic and go at a slower pace in the rain.

Rain, but no traffic and nice fall colors continue.

We make it to the Mackinac Bridge:

We go to the dock and leave our cars and board the boat – Shepler’s to get to Mackinac Island. No cars are allowed on the island.

Lighthouse as coming into Mackinac Island.

We are staying at the Bicycle Street Inn & Suites:

The town is somewhat like Amsterdam with all the bicycles, but add all the horses to that and it is very interesting.

We end the day by the 8 of us going to dinner together at the Seabiscuit Cafe. It was a great time enjoying each others friendship as well as the food. We are hoping for some better weather tomorrow, time will tell.
