The Grand Hotel~Mackinac Island

We had a fabulous time on Mackinac Island at The Grand Hotel, enjoying the Celebrate Your Marriage conference!!  I will post more about the hotel and conference in other posts this next week.

 The weather was perfect, sunny and temps in the mid to upper 70's.
This was the 5th year for Dan and I to attend this conference at The Grand and yes we are going again next May.  This was the first time another couple went with brother Tim and his wife Jennifer. 
When we arrived on the island Monday, it was around noon  and we met up with my niece Alyssa and her boyfriend, they are both year round residents on the island. In fact Alyssa just spent her first winter on the island.                                                                
 We had lunch at Horn's Bar, then walked around a bit in town.

Yum! Look at that fudge!

I popped into Little Luxuries of Mackinac, what a beautiful little shop and talking with Nicole was a pleasure!  You can see more of this delightful shop and read Nicole's blog  when you check out the link.
Here are a couple more pics around the 'downtown' area.

 Love this view..coming down the hill from the Governor's summer residence.

Over the next few days I will share more pics of the island, pics of our fabulous suite at The Grand Hotel and share more about the Celebrate Your Marriage conference.
