Oh to be a butterfly on Monhegan Island!

Monhegan, Maine. A wonderful destination for sure. Fabulous place to visit as a human, oh, but to be on the island as a butterfly! An island filled with beautiful flowers, what a great time to be had!

Enjoy your Sunday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow!

The “Back Side” of Mackinac Island, MI

Several years ago my mom, sister and I took a little vacation to Mackinac Island, MI. It’s a place we went every year when we were kids because my dad raced the Port Huron to Mackinac sailboat race each year. The men raced, the women drove to the island with the kids – had a few days to enjoy the island before the sailors arrived – I remember those trips. So many people! It was fun to hang out with your friends and have the island to roam. Those were the days!

Most people see is the the busy town area with all the cool business, hotels, restaurants, etc. This photo was taken on the back side of the island. Calm and serene – and I need that… while I enjoy the hustle and bustle I SUPER enjoy the quiet, peaceful beauty of the water and the shore. The island is about 8 miles around and it’s situated between the upper and lower peninsula of Michigan and lies in the Straits of Mackinac. Many people think of this as a touristy location, and it can be, unless you know where to go. The back side of the island is heavenly as is the interior of the island. Rent a bike (or even better, bring one if you can) the trails are stunning. My sister and I took a ride after a fabulous dinner and we were hustling to get to town before all light was gone! There are no streetlights, cars, etc. Just bikes and horses/carriages. Beautiful!

Catch you back here tomorrow!

Gas Light – B&W

Sometimes images in black and white are more dramatic, don’t you think? Gas lights have so much character – they give off such nice warm light.

Happy Sunday to you! Can you believe tomorrow is already Monday? Where does the time go?

Catch you back here tomorrow!

Monhegan Boat “Laura B” as seen from Marshall Point Lighthouse

Monhegan Boat Line. Love them. They have two fabulous boats, Laura B (pictured here heading back to Port Clyde from Monhegan), and Elizabeth Ann, a larger boat.

It seems that we usually take the Elizabeth Ann on our way to the island and the Laura B on the way back to Port Clyde. Both are wonderful – the crew – and everyone who works at Monhegan Boat Lines is fabulous!

Catch you back here tomorrow!

Sullivans Island Buoy

Sullivans Island Buoy – South Carolina

You can tell it’s hot from this photo. It looks hot. Steamy even. How nice to be a bird, catching the breeze, taking a dip and then swooping up and into the breeze once again.

Enjoy your Sunday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow!

Monhegan Boat Line, Port Clyde, Maine

Monhegan Boat Line – Port Clyde, Maine

A photo through a window – of the Elizabeth Ann headed back to Port Clyde from Monhegan, Maine. Monhegan Boat Line makes sure the trip is always an adventure – Monhegan is about 10 miles from the mainland. The Elizabeth Ann takes about 50 minutes. We have taken different routes over the years depending upon wind, weather, etc. It’s always fascinating!

Catch you back here tomorrow!
