She was referring to Crisp Point lighthouse, located on the shores of Lake Superior. For a map, please go to THIS link.
She knew I loved lighthouses, and especially Lake Superior lighthouses, so I was happy to hear of this site and immediately planned to visit it.
Please go to the link highlighted above for the lighthouse, it is well worth your time to investigate where it is and to plan a trip there.
Just look at this wonderful little lighthouse!:
When we got there, we were thrilled to see the building was open and the sign said we could climb the stairs INSIDE of it to the top!
I had never been inside a lighthouse and allowed to climb to the top before, so I was so excited to do so!:
This is about half way up the lighthouse as you climb the stairs, looking out to the west:
Again, this is at the top, looking to the west of the lighthouse at the Lake Superior shore. Again, the subtle shadows in the picture are the windows of the lighthouse behind me as I snapped the photo. I liked the ghostly shadows being in the picture!):
Here is a shot of the lighthouse from the east beach. We were way up under the red roof when I took the previous pictures:
I will remember this little lighthouse for quite some time, as it my first climb in one:
Before we left, we had to take a long beach walk, hand in hand.
It was cold that day (only in the 40's F.) and very windy, as you can see by the white caps on the lake.
But we stayed warm from the wonderful experience and hike:
And, of course, I couldn' t leave without a closeup of the driftwood tree root, now could I?:
Thanks, Cathy and Dan
for telling us about this little lighthouse and recommending we visit it!
It was perfect.
