Sunnier Days

So much up here is coming alive… I love it! The season is slowly starting once again. There are still a few weeks left of the school year, and I’ve gotten my final music concert done, which means it’s smooth sailing from here! Well, I hope, hehe… anyway, the weather has been much nicer lately and definitely a lot sunnier, so I’ve been enjoying the outdoors a little more and more every day.

I’m sure that you’ve all heard that the Grand Hotel has made their grand opening this past Friday, but there are also several stores open downtown as well, including the Lucky Bean Coffeeshop, Little Luxuries, Mighty Mac hamburger shop, and Island Slice Pizza, just to name a few. Doud’s Market has extended their hours and now there are lots of places to go past 7pm! Yippee!

I’ve been taking more pics with the new camera, too! Here’s a bit of what I’ve gotten so far:

Some roadwork seen through the May’s Candy Shop window. I think it has something to do with plumbing
Another pretty island sunset
I finally took my first ride on Shepler’s Miss Margy. It’s so spacious!

 

Also a few shots from Arnold Line’s Mighty Huron ~ the water seemed especially clear this day. Plus… a freighter!

 

 

I also spent some time off the island, over at the beach in Mackinaw City, and got some classic pics of the Mackinac Bridge.

 

If you’re familiar with my blog, you’ll notice that I’ve decided to make a change to my overall look and theme in an attempt to lighten things up! If you like it, feel free to like this post or send a comment! I also noticed that with the larger header option with this theme, I may need to get a new header picture as my old picture is just a tad bit blurry… which is a shame, because I really like that picture! I remember taking it one day while sitting inside the Grand Hotel to eat a quick lunch before heading back to work. Well, this may be the year for me to find many more pictures here… and many more adventures!

Speaking of adventures… for those of you who have been following my sci-fi story under the “writing” tab, I’m halfway through writing Chapter 10. That post will be going up soon!

Downtown Mackinac Island, Sunday May 8 (Mother’s Day)

So everything is definitely coming alive up here on Mackinac Island. Now I’mΒ on my way to put the finishing touches on my desserts for my mom this Mother’s Day, and to anyone out there who’s reading this who is also a mother…

… Happy Mother’s Day!
