Michigan Spring

I love springtime and I love Michigan. We went to St. Ignace Friday night. Came home  Saturday afternoon.

Stopped at the lighthouse.  It was 57 degrees on the expressway on our way in, but dropped to 46 by the Lake.

We watched some of the Tiger game at the Keyhole Bar in Mackinaw City. It was fun watching John capably be the bartender, waiter and cashier. He worked hard. Joked with the customers who obviously were tourists, and they loved it.

Then we drove across THE bridge. We checked in at the Quality Inn by the Big Boy restaurant - we will never stay there again. The most uncomfortable bed anywhere ever. We watched the end of the game then went for a ride to the Cut River bridge.

Stopped at the Casino. Lost $20 in 5 minutes. Left the Casino with my other $20 still in my pocket.

Then we came home the next afternoon. Short trip filled with sunshine, deep blue water, ice still covering parts of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. It was a great trip.
