Anniversary Weekend // Mackinac Island

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Ciao beauties! I hope you are having a fabulous day.

What an incredible few weeks I've had. I have so much to tell you. First of all, my sister moved back home from Missouri! She is, well, my otherness. :) We're incredibly close so her homecoming was a big deal. We're having tons of fun already.

Adding to the excitement- Ben and I just celebrated our 4th anniversary with a trip to Mackinaw and Mackinac Island. Yes, they're spelled differently. No, I don't know why. We stayed in the most adorable knotty pine cabin and truly enjoyed our visit.

Today I'm taking you on a journey of our adventures through pictures. Ready?

All dressed up for our anniversary dinner. 

Bread pudding. Absolutely sinful. 

A peek inside our knotty pine cabin. Too cute isn't it? 

Enjoying breakfast cuisine at the critically acclaimed 'Java Joe's Cafe' in St. Ignace, MI. Just across the bridge.

At Java Joe's. The biggest collection of teapots I've ever seen + 28 different kinds of omelets = a memorable dining experience. Did I mention it's owned by a hippie? 

These gorgeous mini-orchids were spotted on a hiking trail near Tahquamenon Falls.  

Hiking through a tunnel of trees! 

The falls! The water (though hard to tell in the picture) is always a coppery brown color due to the tannic acid that is produced from the dense decaying cedar trees that run along the river banks. 

Mackinaw Bridge. At 5 miles long, the bridge always provides stunning views of the water and surrounding island landscape.  

On Mackinac Island. This is a view from the top of a park. The water is 'oh-so' blue! No vehicles are allowed on the Island, providing visitors with a true step-back-in-time experience. 

We made the 8.2 mile trek around Mackinac Island on a Bicycle built for two!! Hooray for teamwork.

Arch rock. Naturally created and defying the odds by still standing! 

Our silhouettes in the crystal clear water!

The exterior of our little cabin. :) 

I hope you've enjoyed this little peek into our vacation!

I will be back with you again this Friday! Thank you for reading, you're the best.
