My ideal vacation would be to travel from lighthouse to lighthouse. I find such a connection to the past in these outdated structures. While many are still active, with modern day GPS units, they are pretty much obsolete as aids to navigation. Sometimes, I look at the home attached to the tower and wonder about the keepers. Did they have a family? Did they enjoy the solitude? The stories these old lights could tell of storms past.
This lighthouse, Tawas Point, is located in Michigan along the coast of Lake Huron.
