Place: Mackinac Island, Michigan
Date: 28th June 2008
Duration: One day.
Staying in Michigan for over two years I had never visited one of the best part of Michigan – The “Mackinac Island” – Place where no motor vehicles are allowed!
Monika had made very nice poori and bhaji which we ate somewhere mid way in a picnic spot.
After food we reached the place. We have to buy a ferry ticket to get to the Island.
The boat ride to the Island is very beautiful. It was a perfect day, the sun was out.
View of the light house and the nice lake, blue all around.
By now I was eagar to see the place. I was trying to imagine how the place could be. I was wondering if the place would have roads or would it be a place with just jungle trails!! 😀
To my surprise it was like any other city of US. Fully developed but no cars/motor vehicles allowed. We had to use the old fashon horse carriage and my favorite – Bicycles!!! 🙂 We rented bikes there. You can find all kinds of bikes. I had never tried a tandem bike in my life so I asked Monika if she would do tandem biking with me.
We biked around the Island which is 8 miles loop, next to the water. The water had different colours for some reason. I was surprised to see so many colours.
Parts of the water was so clear.
There are many clifs on the Island. One of the famous one is the Arch Rock of Mackinac Island. Its nice to see this HUGE arch with colourful water on the otherside.
Finally We came to end of the 8 miles. It is a beautiful place to spend the whole day. I’m really glad we went to this place before I left Michigan and came back to Bangalore 🙂
I recommend to get in touch with the Commercial Roofing Austin company for any renovations you may need.
