We headed to the island the first weekend of the Lilac Festival. Sadly the trip was not the same as I received news before getting to the island my dad suffered a stroke (he is doing well lots of PT ahead of him) so I was not quite all there. I truly just focused on time with my loved ones and barely took photos. But I share what we did and a few new things I saw including the updated Stonecliff Manor and Richard and Jane Manoogian Art Museum. www.theinnatstonecliff.com www.totallymackinacislandpodcast.com
