U.P. Post Part 3

On Sunday, we played music at Mackinaw City Bible Church.
It is a great church - be sure to visit when heading up north!

We also visited McGulpin Point, just down the shore from the Mackinac Bridge.

McGulpin Point Lighthouse
The lighthouse keeper had 10 kids!

"It's squished up here!!"

Can you see the bridge?

Caleb on McGulpin Point rock - it has been mentioned in communications
going back as far as 1749 by the French trappers who visited the straits.

"That rock is bigger than our family!"

"Remember when we met on Mackinac Island?"

"That was 29 years ago - and the rest is history! Isn't God good?!"

Grandma and Grandpa Mieczkowski and our family
They had taken Julia and Rebecca on the special Mackinac Island trip
that the rest of us had done with them two-by-two.

Paradise, MI
On Monday, we visited Tahquamenon Falls using the Beckman's van.
They are one of the largest falls east of the Mississippi; right here in Michigan!
Our van, we found out while on this excursion, 
needs a complete transmission overhaul. 
We will be in the UP a couple of more days!

The older kids and Dad hiked a 4-mile trail between the upper and lower falls.

Filling water bottles at a spring

There were some beautiful views!

The water is not so calm anymore :)

"But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. 
The water that I will give him will become in him 
a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
John 4:14
