August Adventures "Somewhere in Time"

August brings us to Mackinaw Island and the Grand Hotel where the movie "Somewhere in Time" was filmed with Christoper Reeves and Jane Seymour. AWESOME movie!!!

We had to take a 45 min water taxi from the mainland to the island where there are NO motorized vehicles allowed.

The whole island has only horses and bicycles for transportation with the exception of Fire dept. Even FedX delivers by horse drawn wagon. We had a great guide on our wagon tour of the island. The Grand Hotel is as elegant as they come. You set on the long porch which faces the water and you could set there for hours, it is so peaceful. When walking through the lobby you feel as if you are apart of the movie itself.

It was a Grand day...
While on the island we also toured the horse barn. These horses are truly pampered and well taken care of.

Until next time... Happy Trails and Safe Travels.
