Short and sweet today – after all it IS Super Bowl Sunday, and I’m pretty sure 99.9% of my readers are much more interested in watching the game (or enjoying the party) than in reading a blog! But - for the other .1%, here’s what I’ve got for you this week!
Snow, Snow, SNOW!
It was the PERFECT weekend for the Winter Festival on Mackinac Island – lots of snow (inches and inches of the stuff), cold weather to keep it from melting, and sunny days filled with blue, blue skies.
Friends Jeff and Patrick and their friends Ellyce and Danielle flew over to enjoy all the fun, and here are three of their pics from the weekend.
What a spectacularly beautiful place Mackinac Island is – and never more beautiful than when covered with several feet of white, unspoiled-by-motor-vehicles snow. After a slow start to winter, Mother Nature is sure going out of her way to provide plenty of the white stuff lately, and I know Island friends are so thankful.
Below is the link to an awesome video of Saturday at the Winter Festival created by Travis Sredzinski, who is spending his first winter on the island, although he’s been a summer and fall worker for several years. The sound is choppy on my laptop, but I’m hoping it’s not that way on yours. If it is, and it’s annoying to you, just do what I did – turn off the sound! You don’t need sound to enjoy this video – believe me!
Have a great week, and God bless each and every one!
