Seven Days on the Island

We traveled a week ago to Manitoulin Island to Mark's families summer cottage, for our much delayed summer vacation, in October. It was nice to be there with my mom and Marks mom, together. Here is a brief photo journal of our week away!

Beautiful photos, Pegg--I love the moody skies this time of year, especially when contrasted with vivid foliage.

Your photos, unsurprisingly, remind me very much of our travels to northern Michigan. :)
