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.
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."
