I was on that beautiful island May 24-28 and loved every minute I was there. I did not want to leave the island! I love having the web cams to view the island so I can reconnect to the best vacation I have ever had in my life! I will be back next year!

Love the Fresian video, but I have had such "Mac attacks" lately --- I think I was the first on Youtube to watch it! And I have watched it at least a dozen times!!! When will you and your family be back to the Island?

Yes, we were so very disappointed that an ice bridge didn't form; we were going to rent snowmobiles in St. Ignace and do that for one day. Nevertheless, it was a wonderful trip, the weather was crisp and clear, and the hiking, as always, was terrific!

thanks, Mike! Mackinac Island is one of my most favorite places. My boyfriend, my daughter and her husband visited in February, taking the small plane over from St. Ignace. We loved the island just as much in the winter! We have officially been there for all four seasons!
