Day Seven of our 5 Year Anniversary Trip

I'm linking up all of my Mackinac Island posts here! Check out her travel link up.
Let Birds Fly

Friday, July 13th, was our 7th and final full day of our trip. 

If you missed them, here are days 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. ☺

We slept in that morning and then we had a 1:30 appt. to go para-sailing that day! Jake had never been, so I was excited to get to go with him. I don't have any pictures of us actually para-sailing, but here is what I do have.

The 2 people para-sailing in the bottom right hand picture are the couple that went right before us.

After para-sailing, we went back to the hotel, got dried off and went to have lunch at The Yankee Rebel Tavern.

After lunch we did some souvenir shopping. We also got some fudge to take back. There is literally a fudge shop every other store on Main Street. The locals there call the tourists, "fudgies" LOL. I never got tired of walked on Main Street and smelling that wonderful smell of fudge... heaven!

While out shopping, we stopped at the Mackinac Island Veterens Memorial on Market Street. It was really cool to see all the men and women from Mackinac Island that have served our country.

We also visited the McGulpin House, another historical house on the island and the old American Fur Company Store.

After shopping and visiting some of the historical places around the island, we went back and just hung out in our hotel room until dinner time. For dinner, we wanted to eat somewhere that had a patio right on the water, so we went to the Pink Pony, per a recommendation from the man working at the counter at the Main Street Inn where we were staying. It was a great meal with a beautiful view.

Filet Mignon!

After dinner, we went back to the hotel and spent the rest of the evening sitting out on the balcony, drinking wine and watching the people walk by.

Here is a picture of the Main Street Inn and Suites that night, all lit up.

The next morning, we got up and got our stuff together to head home.

Goodbye Mackinac Island!

On the drive home, we drove through several storms, but we got to see a pretty rainbow.

 We had such a wonderful time!! I can't wait to go back someday.

I hope you all enjoyed these posts and all of our pictures. ☺
