2014 Western Camping...Day 3...Thursday, June 5, 2014

Roger and I are both “early-risers” and, this morning, we're enjoying our first cup of coffee at 6:30PM.
It got down into the very low 40's last night so, before I climbed into bed, I turned on the furnace in my camper for ten minutes or so to warm things up. Then, nestled under my down comforter, I was plenty warm for the rest of the night.
Roger cooks up one of his classic breakfasts...Nueske's bacon, sausages, eggs, toast, milk and more coffee. Thus fortified, we grab a shuttle bus from the campground to the ferry docks for our ride over to Mackinac Island for the day. The ferry ride is's a sunny ride of twenty minutes or so. On the Island, we immediately head for the first bar that we see for Bloody Marys and beer...then across the street to the “Pink Pony” for another round.
And so...for the next five hours or so, we hike around town...stopping for more beers, a little shopping, and a bite here and there. I get some whitefish “fingers” that are excellent. And, towards the end of the day, we find a nice little wine bar where we all enjoy a glass of really excellent California Cabernet.
By 3:00PM or so, we've had enough of “bar hopping”, so we get back on the ferry and return to the campground for more cocktails.
We've eaten well during the day, so dinner consists of some sliced salami, a few pieces of cheese and crackers...and, of course, more wine. At sunset, we build another big fire.'s been a long day...and, by 9:30PM, we have all retired for the evening.
