A few more Traveling shots!

I hope these pictures are in the right order. I don't know what happen to blogger while I have been gone, but it seems to be having a crisis! Anyways, just a few more snapshots..... Kathy and I walking in the path by their cabin. Slightly nippy!
In the ferry heading toward Mackanac Island.

There she is! I was soooo excited. I have wanted to go there for years. Yes, you do have to pay $10.00 to go into the Hotel and walk on "the porch". One of the best $10.00 I ever spent. I would have paid $20! It is absolutely exquisite!

We are getting close on our horse taxi! The taxi will turn to the left and let you off by the huge stairway leading up the Hotel!

Some sweet lady offered to take our picture all together! Sandy and Kathy, my wonderful traveling companions. We had soooo much fun.

I have many more pictures of my own, but I don't want to download 500 (no, really!) pictures on Kathy's computer. I can't wait to show you all my purchases for the past month!
I will be home in Phoenix on Wednesday. I believe Kathy and I are doing a joint post on Tuesday....stay tuned for that!

This that the Grand Hotel from SOMEWHERE IN TIME?? I had a friend who wanted to run down the hill there shouting Richard - Richard...I've always wanted to go there! I'm sure you have seen the movied "Somewhere in Time". I have the video but don't watch it often because it is sad..........

Hi Ceekay. I know your trip to Michigan has been a little cold for you! It's really cold today, but you seem to have had so much fun. Have a safe trip back home and it was so wonderful to meet you. Keep in touch!

Beautiful photos. Ten dollars to walk through the hotel???? Amazing!

I have a friend who is an innkeeper at one of the other B&Bs on the island each summer. They love the island.

I have always wanted to go to the Grand Hotel! We should have gone up there when we lived in Indiana a few years ago :-(

I've enjoyed seeing your vacation pictures, and the ones of you and Kathy, y'all look good!

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!

Oooh, you are visited a place where I have always wanted to go...Did you see "Somewhere In Time"? I loved that movie and loved the hotel, or what I saw of it in the movie. Is the interior as beautiful as the exterior? Why the heck do they charge to go inside? I've never heard of such a thing!

I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time.

God bless,

Hi Ceekay! Are you still having fun? Oh, you should go to Jan's blog - jan and tom's place - she is having a Somewhere In Time Party on Nov. 14. It's about the movie and it was filmed right where you were!! I've always wanted to go there. Go check it out! You could show pictures of the hotel!!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
