On Monday, we went to Makinac Island, a small island right next to the bridge. It is a short sail (and they had internet!)
The island is totally car-free, so we enjoyed the very unusual sight of the majority of Americans on BIKE! Never before have I seen so many bikes at once over here. Almost felt like Copenhagen.....
Besides the bikes, they have horses and wagons, and even the trash lorry was a horse-wagon as well! They had full time jobs for a few guys collecting all the horse droppings. These men didn't get bored.
It is the old Indian territory, and on one of the grave yards in the middle of the island we saw a totem looking quite genuine.
There was a beautiful, re-build fort for defending the island from the tallest hill. Very interesting, since I only saw these in westerns!
The view to the next island was beautiful.
Well back in town we had icecream. It tasted great! At least until I took this photo and the dog quickly licked and then got the rest.......
