Seagulls

We were attached by seagulls while on Mackinac Island.  I’m pretty sure we were not feeding them, but we may have had food out.

I’m not sure how I concocted the camera settings used.  I’m guessing they were from taking pictures of something else the night before and I just grabbed the camera and took the seagull pictures with whatever settings were there.

Round Island Lighthouse

Round Island Lighthouse

This picture is so-so, but it fits the lighthouse theme… the Round Island Lighthouse opposite Mackinac Island across the channel there.  I’ve successfully watched fireworks from this lighthouse, which I highly recommend.

Round Island

Round Island

Here’s a nice summer picture to offset the mid winter season…  It’s a picture of Round Island from Mackinac Island.  This is one of the preferred places to camp when kayaking to Mackinac, and the lighthouse is definitely a nice venue for watching the Mackinac Island fireworks over the Grand Hotel.
