Is it with a C or a W? I always spell Mackinaw/Mackinac wrong… so why the 2 spellings?
The French Pronounced it "aw" but spelled it "ac". The British heard it pronounced "aw" so they spelled it that way. Today Mackinaw City retains the "aw" spelling while the bridge, straits and island steadfastly cling to the "ac" spelling. No matter how it is spelled, however, it is always pronounced Mackinaw!
Well we headed to MackinAC Island on Friday with 4 high school girls.
Depart at 8am, catch the 9:30 ferry.
Looking for cheep ferry tickets, go here, they are $11.
A stop at the church
A pose near Father Marquette.
Who doesn’t love the jumping photos
Another church stop:
Arch Rock- we made it!
Checking out the cemetery. Oldest grave was from 1823!
Hike back down.
Hitting the shopping stores- I love Antonia’s turtle photo.
Had to sneek this photo~ no cameras in the stores. Who is seriously going to wear a wiener on their head?
We had a great day. It was a bit chilly but very fun!
