Tea At The Grand Hotel

On September 17th I had the wonderful opportunity to join the Michigan Tea Tour Group headed by Phyllis @ Relevant Tea Leaf blog, for afternoon tea at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan.





It was so nice to meet the ladies who were part of the group!








The afternoon tea was served in the hotel parlor.








The savories and sweets were very good!








There is a tea shop in the hotel where I purchased the English Breakfast tea that we were served.





A darling wicker cart at the florist shop in the Grand.





Transportation to and from the Grand Hotel, if you wish.





Main Street looking both ways.  So pretty!








The ferry I took to and from the island.




Rough waters on the way back to mainland!







A beautiful afternoon spent with tea friends!  So thankful!

For more about this Michigan Tea Tour be sure to visit Phyllis @ Relevant Tea Leaf,  Linda @ Friendship Tea,  Judith @ Lavender Cottage, and Nancy @ Rosemary's Sampler.

Thank you so much for stopping by and God Bless!

And here different photos and angles of the same ones which tell such a heart warming story of our meeting for tea.
It was nice that you could meet up for this part of the trip and I saw the geranium teapots too but preferred the lilac one I purchased.
