The Rest of the Story

It has taken me long enough, but here is the completed project that I gave you a peek at in my last post.
It has a padded exterior pocket for my phone...
 A padded interior pocket for my nook...
 A cute little flower embellishment...
AND here it is...

 I love how it turned out (if I do say so myself). Especially since I saw a similar one selling online for

The reason that I need a new bag was because my sister and I took a bus trip. We rode for about four hours and then we hopped onto this ferry!!! 
Yes!!! We were heading to one of my FAVORITE places!!! Mackinac Island!!!!
(So bear with me because I have tons of pictures).
The purpose of our trip was to WALK THE BRIDGE!!!! I have wanted to do this for quite awhile and there is an annual walk every Labor Day.
 We had an afternoon and an evening on the island. 
It was a gorgeous day!
 We stayed in a really nice hotel.
 The hallways made me feel like I was on the Titanic!! :)
 Since it was the final big weekend of the summer, the island was pretty crowded.
I actually bumped into a bike and saw the whole domino effect thing happen before my eyes!!
We walked for quite awhile after supper, taking in the sights.

 The next morning we caught the 7 a.m. ferry back to the mainland and started our walk!!
It was pretty cold, but was actually comfortable for walking.

Here I am walking over those crazy grate I can't stand driving over!!

I was surprised at how fast the walk went. It only took about an hour and a half.

See my bag??!!
 It was perfect for the trip across the bridge.
 I didn't want a fanny pack...didn't want a back pack...and didn't want 
something falling off of my shoulder.

I'm looking forward to walking again next year!!!
