Sunrise Over Lake Huron

One morning last June, I woke up early and waited for Mr. Sun to come up over Lake Huron. It's been so long since I had a chance to catch a sunrise, especially one by the water. It's the most peaceful, zen-like feeling.

We stayed at the Hamilton Inn in Mackinaw City, and this shot was taken on the small beach behind the inn. The best thing about this inn is its location ... lakefront and literally steps away from the ferry to Mackinac Island. The complimentary breakfast is nice if you don't stay too long, otherwise you'll soon get tired of eating the same food for breakfast (cereal, waffles, sausages, biscuits & gravy, fruits, etc.) every day! The rooms are very basic, with absolutely no frills. But then, we didn't stay much in the rooms. There's too much to do and see on Mackinac Island, starting with the lilac festival! Ahhh ... life is good!
