Day 4

Today started out slow. A storm hit the area on Thursday and washed out some of the roads. So one of our lighthouse locations was flooded and we had to take a 60 mile detour to get back on track. We ended up seeing five lighthouses today.

Ludington North Breakwater Light ~ This light is in a cute little town. We can't climb this light but it was a nice long walk out to see it.

Big Sable Point Light Station ~ This is the light that we were unable to see because of flood waters. In its place i will show you the wached out road to park. Please say a prayer for all the residence in the Ludington MI area. The majority of the homes are under water. They saud it poared rain for 5-8 hours straight and all of the rivere/waterways broke over their banks.

Manistee North Pier Lighthouse ~ This is another one on a long breakwater wall.

Frankfort North Breakwater Light ~ This light is a large castiron square light.

Point Betsie Light ~ This a land lighthouse. We were able to climbe the 40 steps into the lantern room. Great views!

Grand Traverse Lighthouse ~ Another great 1800 era lighthouse. It has been decorated in with great antiques. We were able to climb the stairs to the top and look out onto the lake dunes.

This was another beautiful day. Have a blessed day!
