    This short by James Patrick is one of his best, as he covers the distance from Chicago (also Detroit), to the Island. His only shortcoming is not mentioning the fudge made by several candy shops on the island. Local residents call the tourists who take the many ferry boats over to the island as "Fudgies". We advise tourists not to confuse the road apples with the fudge, ha. Since '44, the ferry boat companies, both from Mackinaw City and the upper peninsula's St. Ignace, have competed to see who could rush their customers over to the island the quickest. The travel time gets shorter every year, now all the boats show rooster tails behind their boats, even hydrofoils are used. Then upon arrival, the world slows down to a bicycle and horse drawn carriage crawl. The only gas vehicle is an ambulance. My mother, 10 yr old son, and I got to experience the ambulance when the 2 horses pulling our carriage got all tangled up and took off full-speed across an open field. The 2 horses, brothers, decided each would go on either side of the only tree in the field, crashing the carriage, tossing my mother and me out. My son responded by running back to the road to avoid the horses... I pulled my mother to an upright position before a horse stepped on her head! (then we fell to the ground, me on top, laughing the whole time. Bruised but uninjured, the ambulance came to whisk her away to the small island hospital. There are several residents now who reside on the island year-round. They cross the frozen waters by snowmobile, for groceries, etc. But the population drops dramatically. The Grand Hotel is still the major attraction, and while horse population has dropped, bicycles are the way to go. Those of us who travel by bicycle take a ferry to the island from Mackinaw City, then another ferry ride from the island to St.Ignace, a fun trip of its own. A perfect start to a UP (upper peninsula) adventure in the summer.

    This is a great place to spend the week end. The many little shops are so much fun to brouse and you can visit the GRAND HOTEL where the movie SOMEWHERE IN TIME was filmed.
