Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island? Beautiful place! Was there once for an INSITE (International Network of Somewhere In Time Enthusiasts) convention.
(the hotel played a central part of the movie)
Enjoy your UP sojourn.
Keep an eye out for the ghost of Christopher Reeve.
Horse and buggy, or bicycle for you, father?
[I had gear, so a carriage it was.]
That is all
Well… also, don’t pick fights with the mosquitos. they make’em big up there. [I’m from Minnesota.]
“We don’t worship statues anymore. We worship felt banners now!”
Enjoy your time up there, Father! My brother and I just left the Keweenaw yesterday with some of our kids and headed back downstate to where we live. The UP is beautiful country!
If I had to guess, that looks like a gin and tonic. If I’m not drinking beer, that’s definitely one of my go-to summer cocktails.
stay away from the fudge, it is sickly sweet there
[I’m from Minnesota.]
I’d say that one wouldn’t go on such a trip just to end up having a gin and tonic, so the honey roasted peanuts must be your drink. How’s that for deduction? [Hmmm… back to the classroom with you, sir. There are GTs and there are GTs. This was one of them! And… thus we renew the age old question: what is the plural of Gin and Tonic?]
The Mackinac Bridge was once the longest suspension bridge in the world.
One poor soul died in its construction.
You should have absolutely beautiful weather. We’re over in the pinky area of the mitten of Michigan, Traverse City. Have a safe trip and hope you enjoy your down time-and Acton time!
Thanks for the hat picture. I had a flashback to my paternal grandfather and my uncle who both sported those felt caps, Pepère while working at the sawmill and Uncle Paul while he worked on a section gang for the Canadian National Railway.
“Even our statues worship statues of Mary” is seriously the funniest thing I have ever read. I literally laughed out loud and so did my husband!
Father, if you are on the island for the firing of the cannon from the fort at the end of the day I would suggest being there. Last summer I was there for the firing and as the only observer there they allowed me to help clean out the cannon. Plus, the historical interpreters employed in the fort were quite knowledgeable and easy to talk to.
Charivari Rob- Fr. Z mentions he is from Minnesota to the warning about picking fights with the mosquitoes because the Mosquito is considered our State Bird…
