“Life is about the adventures you take and the memories you make. So travel often and live life with open eyes and an open heart.” ― Katie Grissom

As part of our road trip last weekend we ventured to Mackinac Island, in the midst of Lake Huron. What a treat this little island was.

I did a little bit of research before on the island but I was still surprised by the beauty as we approached by Ferry. It is  charming, quaint, happy and relaxed.

No motorized vehicles are allowed on the island so we explored the National Historical Landmark by bicycles and horse drawn carriages.

Despite the swarms of midge flies  [harmless and do not bite] that surround the ferry and parts near the docks, this was the highlight of the road trip for me. A confirmation of sorts that life is good when you relax and stay in the moment.
