Near Mackinac Island

We had another great time at Talon Lake with Jeff & Tiffany. They are such gracious hosts and good friends. We enjoyed seeing them and their family again. We also enjoyed Ann, John & Amy and Jeff & Cheryl who also have a cabin on the lake.

The last couple of days before we left they put us to work replacing a water heater in the cabin and then on Wed we put water sealer on the cabins and buildings nearby. We had a good time with it. It was a big work party followed by some great food and photos on Jeff & Cheryl's deck. It was another beautiful evening on lake.
We were up early and on the road by 7:30 but not before we had freshly baked scones delivered. Tiffany outdid herself on this one! What a great send off! She traveled across the lake and surprised us while we were running through the departure checklist lowering the hydraulic jacks.

We left Rutherglen/Lake Talon on highway 17 and headed west. We crossed the Canadian/US border at Saulte Ste Marie. We made it to the KOA at St Ignace, MI about 3:30 yesterday afternoon. We'll be here to see Mackinac Island and the surrounding area.

I am impressed with the campground. It has a variety of spaces for tents, trailers, 5th Wheels, Motorhomes etc. It also has a lot of sites so we had a pretty good selection to chose from. We found a level spot and set up and enjoyed of the rest of the nice day.

Glad to be back online and will be looking forward to posting more updates of the Roadrunner Chronicles.
