Call of the Fall part 2

We biked around the perimeter of the island one day, approximately 7 miles. We took a picnic lunch along to eat about half way through. It was a cool but sunny day.

The water around the island was crystal clear!

Another day we walked a big loop through and around town.

The Grand Hotel is indeed grand! The cost to stay here could also be considered grand.

For some people, Mackinac fudge is their thing.

The ice cream with fudge available on the island was definitely my thing! 🙂

One evening as the evening light was waning, I walked into town to get some pictures. These are some of my favorite from this island!

This was taken on a Saturday evening. The crowds of the day had apparently been there only for the day. These streets were bustling with people earlier that day but were quite by evening.

Like I said, fudge is a really big thing here.

And my very favorite evening shot!



Here’s a travel photography tip for you … If you don’t have a tripod along to take a slow shutter speed shot like the one above (1/20th of a second), find something to lean up against, take a deep breath, and shoot. Or prop your elbows against your stomach, take and deep breath and shoot. Or find something stationary to lay the camera on.
