My Mackinac Island Photo Essay, or "Don't it always seem to go"...

...That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

They took Gerry's head



put up a Totem Pole!


This was originally planned to be a pilgrimage to see Michigan's own Easter Island homage, featuring the head of Homer Simpson, (actually it's supposed to be Gerald Ford). Turns out our scheduled weekend coincided with the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference Sadly the big bronze head was gone so I couldn't pose with it wearing my Bernie shirt.


I did have the chance to get a picture in front of the Governor's Residence on the island. Hard to see but I was pretty sure that was Governor Rick Snyder in the window on the right, behind the tree. Sadly that was the closest I got to any of the several Republican luminaries and clown car passengers that were on the island that weekend


Of course the obligatory photo in front of the now famous Horn's Bar where the fight between the two staffers took place



Here's one with my wife, in the mouth of Cheney's Kitchen I wore the shirt 2 solid days during the conference and received nothing but positive comments and thumbs up from the people there on the island with me, including from some "Republicans for Sanders" that got a picture taken with Jeb



Got a kick out of seeing this Kasich bumper sticker...


On this pedal driven "honey wagon"

Finally, you can't leave the island without bringing back fudge from one of the great Michigan chocolate producers...



If you get handed lemons, make lemonade!
