whitefish Point Light Aug 26-05

Just got back from a lighthouse trip? Have you just finished photographing every aspect of one lighthouse? Post the pictures here! Lighthouse-related photos are also welcome.

You won't be able to guess by the pictures that there were over 45 cars in the parking lot while we were at the Whitefish Point Light; it's called "timing" ;-). That is also the reason (lots of people) that we decided not to go inside the museum account of crowds all over the place. Maybe another time :-)

It's too bad you missed the museum, it's really great!! There's a beautiful second order bivalve lense from White Shoal, and of course the bell from the Edmund Fitzgerald. Just thinking about seeing that bell gives me chills.

But seeing the light itself is of course great. I don't know about you, but I never had much of an opinion about this light before I saw it in person, but after visiting it I really love it.

Mike,

I'm with you in regards to this light as it is the first "skeletal" type I have seen up close and personal but it was very impressive. I wish it had not been so crowded at the museum because we definitely wanted to go inside but we plan on going back someday :-) We were fortunate enough to get over to Sault Ste Marie to a motel, eat supper and get down to the locks in time to see a ship pass through just at dark which was very cool.

Where'd you eat at the Soo??

I love watching ships lock through at night. Tough to photograph, but cool nonetheless.

Mike,

We actually ate stuff we had with us but we did get some goooood ice cream across from the South entrance to the locks and back West. The viewing area they have where you can sit and watch is pretty cool. As it was late in the day, my lady friend did get one shot that we had to "spruce up" a bit to post showing a ship passing through.

Thanks for the photos. I don't think I have seen a skeleton tower actually attached to a house before. Usually you see them off by themselves.
