At the Beginning







Our story starts here...

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful island... many people fought over it, after many years, the winners set up fudge shops and bike rentals for us all to enjoy for years to come.
O.k, so my version of history isn't very accurate. You can read a bit more here.
I have been coming here for 30 years. Michigan has many gorgeous places, but this is my favorite.

Rarely do I buy any souvenirs when we travel, but I couldn't resist this book.
It is the first photography book about the island I have seen that has really interested me. I am fascinated by the photographs, looking at how the island and fashion has changed.

I've lived in Michigan most of my life - Lansing to be exact. I have never been to Mackinac Island. I have always wanted to go, but it was always a holiday weekend and "too busy" so I've never been. Now that I live in Florida my desire to visit the island just grows. (absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that) Thanks for the pictures, they are wonderful.

I adore Mackinac Island! We went there for vacation in 1991. My reason for going there was to see where my favorite movie, "Somewhere in Time" was filmed. Great vacation, all the way around. Would love to go again sometime.

Where in MI are you? We are in Midland. I haven't been to Mackinaw since we moved here in 1994...may be time for a trip...

We went as a family to Mackinac Island a few years ago...it is just so pretty and I love all the history! Thanks for sharing some of these old pics! Some day I would like to get back and see all of the lilacs in bloom while sitting in the Dorothy Draper decorated Grand Hotel...
