Till next year

Winter on the mainland

That's different.

OVERLY>>>> LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seasons over. Back to the mainland.

Time for them to go rest for a while...they did their job and very well...

I have been on more Mac ferries than I can count. Wish I shared it with a beautiful animal like a horse at least once!

Bless their hearts 💕

I shared the ferry with John Goodman and his wife !!!!

One fall trip to the island, Nancy and I saw the entire lower section of a large ferry boat being loaded with horses going to the mainland for the winter. Several guys with lead ropes brought four horses each to the dock. We watched as each horse individually was taken down a ramp onto the boat. Nancy’s camera was clicking away as she captured this event which even I had never seen before! I don’t recall the number of horses on the island during peak season but it could be two or three hundred? Let’s say there are a lot including the ones brought over by summer residents for their own useage. No place like this island I am awear of!

See you in Pickford and enjoy your rest!

Love it!!!

I love the Island and your website. Just a bit disappointed you included several conferences that are not necessarily of the entire island..

Looks like a ghost town 👻🍁🍂🎃🙀🙀👹

Makes me sad to see it like that

I wanna work there

We were there last week and it was so rainy it looks like beautiful blue skies there today. Cool place to visit for sure 😊

Such a beautiful place...

We have been there many yrs in October.....early in the month, mid-month, and even as late as the 3rd week. We love Oct. It feels more like you are a part of the Island. It feels great.

Sad day

Doesn’t seem like Mackinac without the clip clop of the horses. 🤔

Already miss you!

It`s amazing, just 4 months ago it was packed with people.

I bet the locals love this time of year ❤️

We were there yesterday. Enjoyed the colors and walk to Fort Holmes. Only 2 restaurants and Dowds open. So, of course, we had lunch at the Mustang.

Sad to see everybody gone (people, horses, flowers) and beautiful blue skies, but, winter is coming soon. See you all in June!!!!

I love it there . Brings you back in time .

See you again next year!

Happy Halloween


I'm so happy for the kids trick or treating tonight! They had such an awful day on Saturday for the festivities downtown, but maybe tonight's beautiful weather will make up for it.

Definitely a beautiful day

Happy Halloween

We'll be there next year, happy halloween
