Lighthouses and Sunsets

Two of the sights I enjoy most when we are sailing are
lighthouses and sunsets...

The best sunsets are viewed from the west coast of Door County over Green Bay and from the west coast of Michigan over Lake Michigan. The vibrant firey orange and yellows and blacks are magnificent. On Sunset Beach in Fish Creek everyone claps just as the sun dips below the horizon.

There are a great variety of lighthouses around the Great Lakes ~ different in size, shape and color ~ and each one is unique. On one adventure we biked out to Big Sable Point outside of Ludington, MI and discovered it has a nice tour to the top. Recently we found out Rawleys Point allows military familes to rent the lighthouse for vacations...what a great experience that would be.
