Chances are, if you ship something via FedEx to Mackinac island, it’s going to be delivered by bicycle courtesy of THIS gentleman – the Island FedEx guy!
We loved seeing him on his bike, clipboard in hand, and asked him about his job and what he liked about it.
He said it was boring to be retired! So he has taken this job and loves it. Packages arrive by barge or ferry---and then he gets them from the dock to where they are supposed to be.
He passed us by bike a couple of times while we were out walking and exploring the area.
Round Lighthouse, circa 1895!
My love of history was in over-drive!
Just in case it looks cold in these photos, let me assure it it was!
Uhuh! 5 degrees above freezing, plus wind chill!
And yes, it was drizzly rain…but we had a great time anyway!
My friend Jill arrived from San Diego, and after lunch we headed out to walk around town and see what we could see.
I don’t think there is any worry of breaking this rule!
I don’t have a lot of time to add more to this post..it’s been a very full day with a lecture this evening by Susan Carlson followed by a fabulous 5 course dinner in the dining room ---these are just a few shots to keep you entertained until morning when I can do this justice.
I LOVE this photo of this house with its weather beaten shingles on the shore of lake Huron:
((Okay, it looks like the setting of some eerie haunted movie like The Shining or something!))
And I love the sound of this too! Clip Clop!
((Notice the snow?!?!))
More from Mackinac to follow ---my classes start in the morning ---
