My little rescue Tanner right after I got him from a puppy mill rescue group. I'm a senior and he is a senior so perfect match. Ears blowing in the wind, he's free at last! :)

Five Minutes on Mackinac Island - Foggy Morning and the Docks

Posted by Mike Forrester on April 18, 2014 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Spring is here, well, at least it's here on the calendar as the Straits of Mackinac continue to deal with icy conditions, though warmer weather will arrive...eventually!

Thaw out your fond memories of Mackinac Island with the latest in the 'Five Minutes on Mackinac Island' video series titled 'Foggy Morning at the Docks.' It's the start of a summer day on Mackinac. The sun is filtered through the fog creating a dream-like effect. It's still early, so the first ferry boats have yet to arrive and downtown shops have yet to open.

It's time to relax, if only in spirit, on Mackinac Island.

Thanks again for liking the videos and our Facebook page! We'll see you on Mackinac in 2014!

Five Minutes on Mackinac - Main Street After Dark

Posted by Mike Forrester on September 3, 2013 at 9:30am 3 Comments

Evening is an especially pleasant experience on Mackinac Island. The crowds have thinned and the air has cooled. Visitors are strolling along Main Street enjoying the summer evening when the paced has slowed from the afternoon. Sit back and enjoy the evening with them in this episode of 'Five Minutes on Mackinac.'

Here is the direct link to the video: http://youtu.be/iXXbcNspeWg

Five Minutes on Mackinac - Morning Rush Hour

Posted by Mike Forrester on August 17, 2013 at 8:30am 0 Comments

Rush hour on Mackinac Island isn't quite the same as it is anywhere else in America. Perhaps that's one of the reasons I enjoyed watching it from my perch above Main Street. The 2nd floor balcony of the Lilac Tree Suites and Spa provided a great view of Main Street on this busy summer morning. Carriages were lined up, waiting to be filled with visitors, drays were busy hauling freight, dockporters hauling baggage and visitors strolling the still fairly empty sidewalks. Take five minutes to watch the sights and hear the sounds of Main Street on Mackinac Island.
