Isolation

Yesterday was the rare kind of day that makes
Mackinac Island feel isolated.

No ice.
No boats.
No planes.

Just fog
and quiet.

The mainland might as well
be a million miles away...

I feel that way when we have the big storms and the ferries and the planes all stop. Then I realize that no matter how big, we're still on an island.

Too funny - I just picked up a murder mystery set in Mackinac Island. Can't wait to read it!

It looks kind of peaceful from the photo but I imagine it's hard to get where you are trying to go with such dense fog. Hope the fog lifts today and that you have a lovely Wednesday!!

Wow, hardly looks like spring for you right now. Beautiful still....

I would like to spend a year on the island. I think it would be theraputic. :) Love reading about Island life!

Some days I dream of moving to an island like yours, away from the busy Bay Area.

Enjoy the isolation.

Hi Liz, I am a lurker on your blog and I love it! Great picture also! Question~ I am a hairdresser and I was wondering is there a salon on the Island during the winter that is open? I always wondered that. Thanks so much!

Hi Michelle,

There are actually three salons. Two are owned by one company - 7th Heaven. They have a salon at Mission Point Resort and one beneath the Gate House restaurant. The Grand Hotel also has a salon.

7th Heaven below the Gate House stays open all winter.

Oh, that type of isolation sounds about perfect to me right now. I so miss living on an Island!
