National Lighthouse Day

August 7 is National Lighthouse Day.

This day honors these beacons that have lit the way for so many vessels on the waters around and within the United States.

Here are just a few of the many lights I have passed on my 1000-Mile Great Lakes Adventures:

The Marblehead Lighthouse in Ohio was built in 1821

The Au Sable Lighthouse in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Tawas Point Lighthouse

St. Joseph lighthouse

Grand Traverse Lighthouse

In early August, I went on a lighthouse tour in northern Lake Huron and saw these gems:

Cheboygan Crib Light

Fourteen Foot Shoal Light

Bois Blanc Island Light

Poe Reef Light

  1. Yikes! I almost missed it! Wish I'd known before talking to Steph today at Grand Traverse Lighthouse. :)
