Virtual Vacation ~ Michigan


My virtual vacations is on Mackinac Island. My blogging friend Ceekay suggested it.





You come to this beautiful Island by a ferry. That is Mackinac Bridge in the background.




























This is our beautiful Grand Hotel! You can almost see my window there above the first US Flag.





















This is a picture of Arch Rock. It is natural limestone. It reminds me of a looking glass to another world.









There is no cars on
Mackinac Island so I am a bit tired from all the walking.













A awesome site looking at the Mackinac Bridge at night.











The Grand Hotel is a beautiful site at night, all in lights.
The Grand Hotel's front porch is purportedly the longest in the world at some 660 feet in length.



I am going to kick back and relax on the porch with a glass of wine!





I hope you enjoyed Mackinac Island! My next virtual vacation will be in my great state of Arizona!

Cherrie, thank you so much for your kind words, they mean so much. I do recommend that you get another pet. I couldn't imagine how quiet it would be around here if I didn't have the other dogs. All week I have been thinking about single pet families and how sad it must be whe the one pet is gone. I don't know if I could bear it. Please, please go tomorrow and find yourself another friend. I bet you will never regrete it and i also bet that one is just waiting one you somewhere. Please consider. It is great medicene for the heart. I hope I never have to live without a dog in my life, they bring so much joy. Prayers for your blog friend and her cat also. Going there now to read about and offer support.
