Gramma YOU Are A Bad Blogger

But Mikayla it was your birthday yesterday.

Gramma did not have enough time to post
Friday Fun Facts.

Because it was your

We all took a short trip to Harsen's Island for dinner.
This is one of many islands near us
but the only one that is accessible to cars.

The car ferry is about a five minute ride from the mainland.
We are in the middle of the North Channel.

Looking back at the mainland (as we call it here)

I took this picture from the island overlooking the North Channel.
Looking above the car mirror on the right is Russell Island.
The residents use golf carts to get around. 
On the left is the mainland.
At the North end of Russell Island is where the North Channel
meets the Shipping Channel.
Not sure if you can see the river in between the mainland & island.
Walpole Island wraps behind Russell Island.
Looking at the far left above my mirror is a glimpse of Walpole in the distance.

This is the view of the Shipping Channel at the restaurant we were at last night.
Across the channel is Walpole Island.
This is the same island that is across from our house on the river.
(very big island)
The Canadian residents of this island are from the First Indian Nation.

The grand kids were able to see a freighter

And a tug pushing a barge.

We had a nice evening outside on the island.
Mikayla wanted pizza for her birthday and a Shirley Temple kiddie drink.
Michael had the same thing.
Bob and I shared a pitcher of beer with pizza.
Michele (daughter) had a few Long Island Ice Teas with her pizza.
(we were her designated driver...those drinks can kill ya) LOL 

Blessings from the island
