We wander around Mackinaw City and check out the marinas, waterfront parks, fudge shops, antique stores, and clothing outlets. Native American Indian establishments serve up food, trinkets, and old world, traditionally made by hand, crafts and weapons.

We set up at the foot of the five-mile bridge, the longest of its kind in the world. Here we snap pictures of the lighthouse, beach, bay, ships, and historic buildings.

Today we drive a lot. It’s okay though because we won’t do many miles over the next few days. Instead we’ll be camped in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Park along Lake Superior.
