NIGHTLIFE

For many Mackinac Island visitors, the fun is just starting when the sun sets and the last ferry leaves the dock. That’s when the sounds of big band, folk, rock, country, jazz and blues fill the restaurants and pubs. The tunes mix with the relaxing notes of foghorns, waves, seagulls and horse hooves to create a symphony of Mackinac Island nightlife. Experiencing the afterhours vibe is a bucket-list reason to stay the night on Mackinac Island.

A trail to Sunset Rock ...

It’s national lighthouse day, and I really didn’t realize it until now. This is the Round Island lighthouse, also known as the Old Round Island Point Lighthouse, which started operations in 1895. It’s just to the south of Mackinac Island. I’ve sailed past this lighthouse a ton of times over the years, most notably during many of the Chicago to Mackinac races that I’ve done, with this lighthouse serving as a finishing mark of the race. It’s a favorite of mine.

I took this shot a few weekends ago, and apart from the fact that traveling at night by boat through a busy channel to a tiny spit of land is interesting enough, I had the pleasure of doing this adventure with my 9 year old nephew and his father. It made for a memorable evening. We left Mackinaw City at 9:30 to a spectacular remainder to an evening sunset behind the bridge, and finally anchored on the SE side of Round Island for a few hours. We had a great window - no ferry traffic, large high pressure center, no clouds, and no wind. The connection to the lighthouse property is barely underwater when you walk from the main island to the lighthouse, but we were greeted by a few incredibly large toads that were evidently very well fed, and rather lonely. We took pictures for a few hours, left the island, and were back in bed by 2:30 am. Quite the little adventure, and here was the shot that I was able to grab. It’s been on my ‘list’ for quite some time, and I was incredibly happy to be able to finally check it off the list. Share it if you would like, and let this be a short reminder that we need to protect these incredible pieces of history on the Great Lakes. They are awesome. Sail on, Christopher

Summertime feels and a little strawberry love. Our new window for August. 🍓 It took 2 nights of late night crafting and a couple of glue gun burns but we think it turned out pretty cute.
