A Beautiful Island
The milky seagulls screeched high and low saying the forbidden goodbye. The waters didn’t seem to rush anywhere. But I did, to see it all in the moment. The famous Mackinaw city and the Mackinac islands. Bare beauty it was… but essential it was! You understand the bare essentials of life, when you are amidst nature, one with it. The island perched cheerfully in the sunshine waters. Water glugged from sky blue to turquoise green everywhere. We cruised on the Sheplers fastest ferry boats from the fleet departing from the city dock in the north Michigan to reach the abode at the streamers pace. The ferry’s outlet pipe busted out water tailgating it. Wind bloomed and then squashed us on the faces, flowing everything along as we travelled under the Mackinac Bridge. The island was a rustic fairytale locale overlooking the Mackinac straits. It captured the innocence of yesteryears and the modernization of today to give you the perfect cocktail present. Carriages, carriage tours and cycles were lavishly lazing on the narrow roads designed to run parallel the beautiful waters. The grey stones washed and swelled on the shore and wooden docks stood handsomely on the edges. A city dozing in the past but tickling with fun and natures abundance. Pulchritudinous! Decadence.
A city landscaped on an island, with water in the outer circumference and clouds enveloping like a blanket. So all you see is blue green blue!
