It is a long strip of dredged out water so that large boats can find shelter during bad weather on Lake Superior.
I don't believe I have posted these photos of Portage Entry for you before now, so before I REALLY get behind on my blog post photos, I decided to post them today for you.
Entry and the lighthouse to the right of this photo:
And another deep purple wildflower which I don't know the name of.
I just loved this lighthouse way on the end
of the opposite shore from us:Another shot of those purple cone shaped water flowers:
Right when we got to the Portage, there was this old, antique boat at the first
boat tieup spot.
I loved it!:
All along the walkway were these huge bright orange tie up spots for the large boats to tie up to. I loved the rusty chains on one of them:
We have lived in the U.P. for years and have never stopped to look at Portage Entry and we really enjoyed looking at the lighthouse, boat, and the many wildflowers growing in the bushes and along the waterway.
I hope you got a glimpse of its beauty from my post today.
