Mackinac Island Spring Update – Vol. 1 – 3/28/2012

Hello, and Happy Spring!

I hate to do this, but I’m feeling a little under the weather, and I’m pretty sure trying to write something sensible is not going to happen tonight.  I promise, good Lord willing, I’ll be back next Wednesday with spring happenings on the Island.

Until then, I do have a few photos friends have shared, and I’m posting those below.

From a friend of ours, J.J. at the Chippewa Hotel, a beautiful, misty view of the harbor from the balcony of the Chip.

Heather May took this "high above it all" view of the Straits from Pontiac Trail last week. I can't see a speck of ice in the water.

I love this perspective of Little Stone Church from Robert McGreevy.

My favorite this week - the end of our street (Cadotte). Heather May said no filter was used - the sky was truly that color as evening came to the Island. Love, love, love that corner.

Hoping you all have a wonderful week and weekend.  If you’d like to see our neighborhood in Georgia (in full bloom), you can visit us at  We’ve had a fantastic azalea and dogwood season!

See you next week.  God bless.
