over 200 photos during this day trip.
I walked past the front of the Grand Hotel to West Bluff Road and its gorgeous huge Victorian Homes, where I took photos of the Straits of Mackinac, Mackinac Bridge, ice fishermen, and the 1000-foot Great Lakes freighter Edgar B. Speer.
Returning to the Grand Hotel, I took some photos on the 660-foot porch. This was the first time that I have seen the porch without its dozens of wicker chairs, and bright yellow awnings.
I worked my way back toward town, then down to the waterfront facing the Round Island Lighthouse.
