Colonial Fort Michilimackinac, Michigan Part 3

I hope you enjoyed Part 2 of our Fort Michilimackinac adventures thus far!  Now it was onto the cannon demonstration!

Getting ready to shoot the cannon.

 
The younger fellow was pretty hilarious and did an excellent job!
 


Kelly caught the cannon ball after it was shot off! JUST KIDDING! Haha! We got to feel how heavy it was.  Definitely heavier than it looks.

 
No off to tour the houses again!  Pretty fireplace.
 
 
Now we are visiting the Commanding Officer's House!
 
 
Next, the British Trader's House!
 
 
Now we are visiting Treasures by the Sand: Archaeology at Michilimackinac.
 
 
Some facts about Michigan archaeology!
 

 
Scale model of the fort and past digging sites.
 
 
Reconstruction facts about the fort.
 
 
This is quite interesting.  Just wait for the next photo!
 

 
Here's the fish skeleton!  The girls maybe looked at this for maybe 3 seconds and moved on. LOL
 
 
A cellar from one of the original buildings. (1700-1800s)  So cool!
 
 
Next up, picking herbs for a fresh stew.....Yum!
