The ferryboats are running back and forth to Mackinac Island now. The ice has broken and soon the main street on the island will swell with summer tourists. For those longing to be on the island and enjoying its beauty you don't have to wait for a vacation. Browse the Mackinac Island photostream at flickr.com.

If you are thinking of making a trip up to Mackinac Island I highly recommend Mackinac Connection: The Insider's Guide to Mackinac Island. It's a great way to get ideas for seeing different parts of the island that a lot of folks miss. Plus, if you're thinking of staying at one of the numerous bed and breakfasts or other inns it gives reviews of the accommodations.

I love this picture! It's reproduced from a slide that was taken in 1963. Since the day is winding it's way down and it being Friday and all I thought this was an appropriate (an beautiful) shot to close out the week.
