Ahoy There!

For two days now we have not been able to see much of the Mackinac Bridge. We have awakened to the sound of a freighter blasting its signal in the pea soup fog. The fog horn on the bridge is constantly going and is very soothing. With the rain coming down and the fog horn blowing, one can very easily take the day off and curl up and read or take a nap.
A few years ago on a hot, humid day in August, I had a strange thing happen. The sun was shinning on land and the Straits of Mackinac was in a deep fog. I started out of my office to discuss a matter with my cleaning staff, when all of the sudden I was stopped dead in my tracks. From out of the foggy water loomed a tall clipper ship. For a moment I felt transported back 200 years. I just knew the pirates were coming to take me away! Then I heard French singing and from the fog came the French voyagers in a long canoe. For sure the sun had gotten the best of me! These characters were all real and on their way to Colonial Fort Michilimackinac for another reenactment.
One never knows what one will see in the foggy waters on the Straits of Mackinac. Come see for yourself. Remember, a rainy day in Mackinaw is better than a good day at work!
