When the lakes freeze over and the ships no longer sail the waters of the Great Lakes, the lighthouses still stand vigilant along the shoreline. For the lighthouse keepers and their families, it must have been a lonely winter, especially at the lighthouses that are miles away from any town. This is the new Presque Isle lighthouse, It’s called new because the old Presque Isle lighthouse stands a few miles away. The old one was not tall enough and the one that replaced it is one of the tallest on the Great Lakes and is the tallest tower open to the public.
It’s the start of a new year and with it come resolutions and goals. I don’t really have resolutions but I do have a long-term goal of visiting every lighthouse in Michigan. I have been to about half and hopefully this year I will be able to add a few more to the list. I hope you have a prosperous 2019 and are able to achieve your goals. I hope you get a chance to get out and explore Michigan.
