Instagram post 17877986515902866 Traveling to Mackinac Island which sits between Michigan and its “Upper Peninsula” is like traveling back in time: no cars or mechanized transport are allowed on shore, it’s main harbor is filled with sail boats including those arriving on the annual Chicago Yacht Club Race, and its cobble stone streets are dotted with white picket fences, Victorian painted ladies and old timey fudge shops. And yet still, despite all these anachronistic embellishments of a bygone era, the island is still more progressive on issues of structural racism than Founders Brewing. Cheers!

Instagram post 17870035991014916 What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
—
Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.
—
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.

Instagram post 18245872447052764 #MackinacIsland is a beautiful place that definitely lives up to all the hype. It’s one of Michigan’s top tourist draws, and for good reason. Visiting this lovely island, just a 20 minute ferry ride from the mainland, is like stepping back in time. Cars were banned on #Mackinac in 1898 and haven’t been allowed since, so island life revolves around horses and bicycles. #VictorianArchitecture predominates as well, making for incredible scenery at every turn. I truly loved it there. #MyMackinac #MackinacIslandLife #MackinacIsle #PureMichigan

Instagram post 17876809408851066 Fresh off the plein air easel of Grand Hotel. “Grand Hotel Blue Ceiling.” Capturing the color off this ceiling fascinates me! In person that part of the painting glows with the relatively neutral colors surrounding it. It is that color to fool the birds into thinking it is the sky so they don’t nest there. While I was painting I heard a guy tell someone it was to fool spiders... I’m not sure if that is true!?🤣

Available through Mackinacs’s Little Gallery. Dm me with questions.

Instagram post 17973285172418696 #FortMackinac was originally built by the British during the Revolution, abandoning their mainland fort, #FortMichilimackinac, for a strategically better and more easily defensible position on #MackinacIsland. After the war, the American army moved in, but was ousted in one of the first battles of the #WarOf1812, not even knowing war had been declared. After that war, American soldiers once again came to Fort #Mackinac. After the Civil War, Mackinac Island was protected as #MackinacNationalPark, America’s second after Yellowstone, and the army was charged with protecting the park. Eventually, this land was turned over to the state of Michigan and became Michigan’s first #StatePark. There sure is a lot of interesting history on the island. #MichiganStatePark #MyMackinac #MackinacIslandLife #MackinacIsle #PureMichigan

Instagram post 18026708614277451 My dad absolutely loved drinking coffee and every now and then I would spoil him with a cappuccino when I was free during the hectic summer months. Before he passed, it was pretty obvious to combine our famous family fudge recipe and my most popular flavored brew, Love Potion #9 together. It has become a favorite for both candy and coffee lovers alike. Available again this season at the shops and online! .
