And they're off!
Before I walked to fetch her at the end of the schoolday, I walked to Phil's office. It was painted recently and looks nicer! This is a view out a hall window near the offices. A few large cedar trees are missing because they were causing guests to miss the lake view. (Don't worry, most trees are still around!)
So happy to see Daddy!
We bundled up and used the double stroller. Pulling the sled yesterday was less than ideal. My toddler kept getting out. I can fasten her into our blue double stroller. I put on the soundtrack to "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" to comfort my contained little two year old as we traveled.
At least it's a pretty walk!
Haan's 1830 Inn:
St. Anne's Catholic Church:
I love the steeple!
There are a couple of these in front for horses:
Looking up the side of St. Anne's (the stained glass windows are boarded up for winter, but the church has services year round):
Harbor View Inn:
The Inn on Mackinac (it may just have the happiest paint job on Mackinac!):
Looking up Cadotte Ave (one of my favorite shots of the walk!)
I set the girls free once we reached Mission Point Resort. They said they wanted to walk.
The executive putting greens (protected from snowmobiles by orange fencing):
Lovely Lake Huron:
The Bistro on the Greens (my favorite place to eat on the island!)
Poor little golfer looks cold!
The girls didn't walk; they played.
Sliding down a small hill:
I got bored and tried to get closeup pictures of things. I liked the winter berries on the trees:
Mission Point Resort:
The Gazebo (popular wedding site when it is not winter):
Robinson's Folly has snow:
Smaller weddings can occur at Tranquility Point. I should tackle these stairs and nab some photos of the wonderful view!
The girls played happily outside a little longer once we got home:
I think she knows she's adorable...
In spring, this will have lilacs!
Were you ever involved with a Mackinac Island wedding? They don't exactly happen in winter, but they often get planned at this time!
