Our typical day on Mackinac Island usually goes a little something like this:
- 6:00 – Wake up
- 7:00 – Breakfast at Chuckwagon
- 8:00 – Bike around the island with copious photo stops
- 9:30 – Other morning activity (more biking, hiking, etc.)
- Noon – Light lunch
- Afternoon – PORCH!
By the time we’re finished with our morning activities nothing sounds nicer than sitting on the porch at the Market Street Inn, where we stay while we visit, to watch the world go by. It’s extraordinarily relaxing, and my island vacation wouldn’t be complete without an afternoon or two spent on the porch.
So what do we do when we’re sitting on this beautiful porch? Why, take pictures of horses, of course! Every tour conducted by Mackinac Island Carriage Tours, not to mention numerous taxis and private carriages, take the Market Street route. I like to try to get their eyes. I think they’re beautiful. Here is just a sampling. (By the way, I took these pictures myself.)
I can’t imagine every staying anywhere else!
