What I did on my summer vacation!

I just got back last night from a week-long vacation up north in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This was my first time going so far north! It's funny, I've been all over the U.S., but barely anywhere in my own home state. It was about time we did something about that!

Boyfriend and I spent the weekend with Boyfriend's Mummu (that's Grandma in Finnish) in the Soo (aka Sault Sainte Marie, aka the Canadian Shield). I got to see the Locks! Finally! No, they're not really that exciting, but I've always wanted to see them nonetheless. I don't have any pictures from this leg of the trip, but here's a bird's eye view from Google:



Then we went down to St. Ignace, which is just north of the Bridge, and we spent a few days going back and forth to Mackinac Island. (Pronounced Mack-in-aw. Yes, Michiganders are a weird bunch. We know.) We took a carriage tour, biked around the island, and bought way too much fudge. Yum!

Here's the view from our hotel in St. Ignace:


And some eye-candy shots from the bike tour around Mackinac: 






Hope you all enjoyed the pictures - and your summer!
