Arnold Transit started running ferries on February 28th this year, the earliest start since we've been living on Mackinac!
There's still some ice out there, as you can see - the scraping of the ice on the steel hull of the boat makes for some interesting sounds.
Most of the ice is thin as paper, just a skim on the water. It makes some really interesting patterns as it breaks and moves in the wake of the ferry.
That thin layer of ice acted somewhat like a mirror, catching the reflections of the Grand and the cottages on the West Bluff.
We obviously had some snow while we were away.

And approaching the harbor:
Coming into the dock:
There's our bikes, looks like we'll be walking home!
But that's okay, it's such a gorgeous day here on Mackinac.
