This past Memorial Day weekend found us on the quaint and bucolic Mackinac island, MI. Couple of years ago (on Labour Day weekend) we had been on the island with the intention of going on the Pictured Rock Cruise in Munising, MI. However, due to some unfortunate turn of events (or should I say due to some unfortunate and incorrect turns shown to us by our GPS) we missed the cruise.
This time we can prepared with the maps and made sure that we got to do the cruise. The cruise over Lake Superior is simply breathtaking and the artwork, hewn by the elements over millions of years, is spectacular.
The odds were not entirely in our favour though. Weatherman had predicted a downpour during the entire two hours of our cruise. So carrying my camera was out of question. Wifey’s iPhone 7 Plus (water resistant and all) was then the only viable camera option.
During the first half of our cruise we journeyed under a cerulean sky with the sun smiling brightly on us. However, as soon as we turned and were on our return journey Mr. Captain (of the boat) announced that we were about to go right through the middle of the storm (lightning and all!). And indeed we were greeted by a hearty squall on our way back.
Nonetheless, we had accomplished what we came for, so no complaints there. Presented below are some of the photographs from that memorable cruise.
