While visiting Rabbit Run Cottage, I discovered a lovely post about Lilacs. It brought back happy memories of our 2006 northern Michigan vacation.

We visited Mackinac Island, during the annual Lilac Festival. Countless Lilac bushes were in full bloom. The fragrance was fabulous.

Our day began with an early Ferry to the island. Exploring this gorgeous island, the cottages, gardens and the beautiful views are some of the wonderful memories, that make us wish to return. Best of all, we shared this great vacation with our family.
