We’re here, we’re here, we’re here! We’re on-line, we’re on-line, we’re on-line!
We were connected to cyberspace this afternoon, and my first impulse was to sit down and talk about everything that has happened since we arrived. But . . . there is just so much to tell you that I would be up all night. So . . . . I’m going to save that for Friday morning and tonight post some wonderful photos Jill took before we arrived. As all of you who follow this blog know, Jill is my co-photographer/researcher/partner-in-crime, and the photos she posted while we were “incommunicado” are super.
Here they are, with captions. Tune back in Friday morning for my first “official” post from the most beautiful rock on earth!
A freighter slips silently through the cut between the two Round Island lighthouses. I never tire of watching the freighters go by. Wouldn't it be neat to walk down that long deck!
This is the Carriage Tour "school bus". The driver in front is the "professor", and the "students" are behind her. She teaches - they listen. She narrates the "script" over and over, and they memorize. She gives instructions and directions and information about the horses, and they take notes. And when the professor decides each student is ready to graduate - and that happens ONLY when they are straight "A" students - THEY get to start driving!
Garbage truck - Mackinac Island style!
Nicole Doud, who owns Little Luxuries of Mackinac Island, took this cute shot of Jill modeling one of the many precious aprons Nicole's shop carries. Jill . . . apron. Jill . . . . cooking. Sorry, Jillski - it just doesn't commute.
See you Friday morning with all the first week excitement. Hope you’ll forgive me for putting it off one more night, but when you find out what I’ve been doing for the last two days, you’ll understand why I needed to get a good night’s sleep tonight. How’s that for a teaser!
It’s so good to be back!
