We woke up early on July 17th intent on crossing the Mackinaw Bridge before the wind kicked up. As it turned out, we started across the bridge at 6:00 a.m. but still had high wind warnings and needed to drive at no more than 20 miles per hour across the lengthy bridge.

As we began to drive around Lake Superior, we stopped at a deserted beach to let WB frolic in the sand and the surf. He loved being able to dig in the sand and started doing his crazy eights, running at top speed.
As we continued on Route 28 we were fortunate to see 2 sandhill cranes. Pictures follow:
