Excursion: Round Island

We have been wanting to get over to Round Island all summer. The weather and waves were perfect this morning, so we borrowed a friend's boat and made the mile trip in no time. 
There was so much to do the kids couldn't
decide what to do first.

Should we explore the lighthouse?

Smash rocks?

Or find new friends?

 We were only on Round Island for a few hours,
but we had a great time.

The kids were disappointed that the door to the lighthouse was locked. (Surprise surprise.) I suggested we come back next year for the Open House, which is usually the second Saturday in July. Until then, I temporally satisfied their curiosity with this:

I have always been curious about Round Island! Thanks for the post! We are actually on the island (Mackinac) right now, and heading home tomorrow. My boys have had me on a whirlwind non-stop adventure since we got here. We decided to come up last minute for one last short trip before school started. One of these times we have GOT to get together for coffee! Take care! Melody
