It was a lovely weekend.

Hahn Cottage

I had the best weekend! I went with my knitting group up to Mackinac Island and stayed at a gorgeous, historic home called Hahn Cottage, with views of Lake Huron and the Mackinac bridge. (If you've never been to the island, just watch Somewhere In Time, which was filmed there.)

 Our "cottage" was located past the Grand Hotel in a beautiful wooded setting, but in between the house and the hotel is an amazing row of mansions along the bluff. The island is also celebrating Lilac Festival, so there were a profusion of blooming bushes, as well as flowers galore that have already gone out of season down here in southeast Michigan.

Another "cottage".

The poppies by the tree were extraordinary.

The getaway was exactly what I needed, and I am so grateful to the Hahn's for allowing us to have such a lovely experience.
