mackinaw city.



We had to postpone our annual Labor Day trip to see family in Chicago, so we took advantage of the long weekend and rode up north with my parents for one last camping trip (read: three days of complete relaxation).

On an overcast day, we went into Mackinaw City nearby. After getting fish & chips at our favorite place, we walked along the shore and everyone was just in a good mood. I took photos of the cloudy evening sky as we walked along the marina looking at all of the boats and their names. My favorite was The Lizard with aqua-green stripes, and Q found his dream boat aptly named Cake & Ice Cream. We stayed until the lights on the bridge started to appear.

Sounds like a blast! Although waking up to 49 degree temps is a little chilly, but totally worth it if you were the slightest bit prepared (which I'm sure you were!)
