Left after breakfast and got home at 11pm Eastern time. I HAD A BLAST, on the way to the fest, at the fest, and on the way home!

Before leaving the hotel room I checked Google traffic and found there was an hour and a half delay on the Mackinac bridge. I pulled up a webcam and found half of the bridge packed with people! I googled some more and learned that they "walk the bridge" every labour day. The web page said it starts at 7am and "shuttle busses running until 2:30pm" so I figured it should be wrapping up by the time I get there.

I was miles away from the bridge when I hit traffic on the highway, so I stopped at this scenic lookout to check the map:

Then doubled back about a mile and found a quiet road along the shoreline:

That road took me right to the bridge and I merged with traffic just as the last walkers were being escorted off! AWESOME!

The first time I had ever crossed that bridge was at night, it is much more epic (and a little scary) during the day!

Anyway, home safe, had a great time, nice to see everyone!
