Menominee North Pier Lighthouse

This light is located at the end of the pier on the north side of entrance to the Menominee River.

It flanks Marinette, Wisconsin and Menominee, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

I had the opportunity to walk the pier and get a photo of this light while on vacation in the UP of Michigan in the fall of 2006.

Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse has been overlooking the Straits of Mackinac since 1889. One of my favorites so far! I like the castle like architecture, and the grounds are very well kept. Situated in Mackinaw City, Michigan you can view the Mighty Mac as well.

St. Ignace Lighthouse

St_Ignace_Lighthouse

This photo of the lighthouse in St. Ignace, Michigan is a contribution by “My Cousin”, Ken. While he and his lovely wife Barb were on a road trip of their own, they visited St. Ignace in the upper peninsula of Michigan.

When he realized I have been gathering my own photo’s of Lights, he so graciously added this to my collection.

The Wawatam St. Ignace Lighthouse was erected on June 6th, 2006.

Thank you Ken!!

Petoskey Pier Light

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My fall color tour of Northern Lower Michigan wouldn’t have been complete without a stop at Petoskey’s Pier Light.

As you can see the Little Traverse Bay was calm and serene!!

I took pause for a bit to watch fishermen pull in salmon swimming upstream.  They were definitely on the move this perfect fall day!!

Manistee Lighthouse

A very hot summer’s day in 2012 on the shore of Lake Michigan in Manistee. I took more than one dip as I photographed yet another Lighthouse on my quest!

Ludington North Breakwater Lighthouse

Sailing

Ludington North Breakwater Light was established 1924.

A lovely walk out on the pier gives you a view of dunes to the right. Waves splashed against the breakwall to the left, while the water to the right was quite calm on the day I visited.

When the Lighthouse is open you can tour the inside.

My visit was May 20,2012. It was quite warm on shore, but the breeze was brisk and cool as I approached the Lighthouse. In fact it was so cool that the volunteers who man the Lighthouse had sweatshirts on.
