Whew! I think I’m getting too old for all this fun!
It was another beautiful weekend on the Island, and the Lilac Festival activities are in full swing!
Ted began working at the Visitors Center this week, and after he got off Saturday afternoon, we walked downtown with Patty and Buz to have dinner and check out all the fun. We stopped in at the Chippewa patio for a drink, then walked down to the Seabiscuit Cafe for dinner. I’m such a stick-in-the-mud about ordering the same thing over and over, and this year I promised myself to try something new each time we eat out. On Saturday night I chose the English Pot Roast Muffins . . . slow-cooked pot roast, smothered in caramelized Spanish onions, served over a toasted English Muffin and drizzled with Bleu Cheese sauce. It came with a side of Tavern Dark Ale onion rings. Oh yeah – it was yummy!
When we walked out of the restaurant, we could hear music coming from Market Street and knew “Dancing in the Street with the West Michigan Bootscooters” had begun.
Sunday was Buz’s birthday, and as a surprise Patty placed flowers at the alter for him in Little Stone Church for the morning service. After church a big group surprised him again with lunch at the Gate House.
I know there haven’t been many Mackinac Island photos tonight – this one has mostly been friends and fun together. But, after all, having friends and family here makes the Island that much more magical. Sharing the magic . . . I love it!
