Mackinaw Island is the home of the Grand Hotel, where they filmed "Somewhere in Time", a great love story starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour.
On the island, there are no motorized vehicles, you walk, you bike or you go by horse (or horse pulled convenience of some type.)
Man and I were there last in late July, 2009. We took a buggy ride around the island, with a tour guide. Here are some photos:
Our carriage, during a rest stop for the horses.
(Well, that is what the driver told us, and
yes, he IS talking on a cell phone.)
The view out the side of the carriage, is, mmmm,
better? more interesting?
Man, getting acquainted.
*This is part 1 of a three part series on the horses of Mackinaw. You know what they say - - stay tuned.
