Day 222 of Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways
This morning Petey and I began our tour along Michigan’s Sunrise Shore. Our day started in Mackinaw City where we boarded the 8:30 ferry to Mackinac (Mak-in-aw) Island. The double-decker catamaran whisked us across Lake Huron in 18 minutes or less on a calm, clear day.
We disembarked into a land of pedestrians, cyclists, and horse drawn carriages…no cars are allowed. Even the island’s garbage truck is a giant wood cart pulled by horses. For a brief moment I thought what a nice way to live…no noise, no exhaust fumes, and naturally exercising to get around. Then I thought of the snow, the rain, and running late. I wander what the islanders do, especially in the winter. Perhaps snow mobiles are allowed.ON THE ROAD AGAIN!
