Since the day J and I started traveling, so, so many years ago we had one rule and one rule only. That rule was "never, ever go to a tourist location between April and September"* . Yesterday, lulled into a false sense of security from our last few years of traveling we forgot the rule. It was a little gloomy so we decided to take a boat to Mackinak Island.
The boat ride was fun, but we sat inside because it was drizzling.
Beautiful old buildings, with horse drawn carriages everywhere. Unfortunately there were also
A gazzilion, million people. We forgot the number one rule, don't go to a tourist location until after school starts.
Iz enjoyed the ride back immensely.
*Disclaimer This rule does not imply in any way that we do not love children, we most certainly do, just not in quantities of a gazzilion, trillion, million!
