Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

Great shots Ron.

Canada captured the Island in the early days of the War of 1812... but then gave it back

I really enjoy that Island. Did you spend the night there? Something special to wake up to the sound of the horses going down the street....

Was the next stop Frankenmuth?

We stayed in Mackinaw, not on the island. Frankenmuth was the next day & supper @ the Bavarian Inn.

Sounds like you took the same tour.

We drove around that lake back in 2006 with another couple and did those stops.

Did not stay on the island on that trip but went back in 2008 and spent a weekend there.

Were you on your own or with a tour group?
