Around an hour after we left the Bob Evans in Grand Haven, we entered an area of Michigan which one week earlier must have been jumping. It seemed like the area was in winter shut down mode for sure. This is definitely a summer hot spot. We passed 'Michigan's Adventure', which looked like a small Six Flags amusement park. Go-Karts, ATV rentals, and Sand Dune Rides, lined the small, winding road, that led to the lighthouse. Summer vacation was written all over this area. Kind of a 'Lake of the Ozarks' without the heat.
This was the first lighthouse that actually looked like someone could have lived in and called home. Built in 1875, the brick structure stands 33' high. There were a few other photographers around taking pictures, and an early fall, Lake Michigan gloom, was the feel. Although one cannot tell from this picture, this lighthouse is nestled, on a small bluff, in the trees, above the lake, and gave off a very secluded feel.
