Another day, another lighthouse. That seems to be my motto as I have been traveling around the Great Lakes.
Each one seems just as picturesque as the last, and I enjoy transporting myself into the past and imagining what life navigating through these waters before the advent of electricity came to us. To think about how many ships must have crashed on these shores. To wonder what it was like to live in a tower and man it with whale blubber throughout the freezing nights. It really is amazing how far we have come with navigation technology. Each lighthouse is fully automated now, pushing a very necessary job into the annals of history. It’s just very interesting to me.
Point Betsie lighthouse is one of those lighthouses that has been antiquated in to history. It now operates as a museum, offering you a glimpse into this interesting past. Even better, if you plan it out in advance, they offer the lighthouse keepers suite on VRBO and you an a friend can rent it out and truly rewind yourself into this past.Closest Supercharger Travers City MI 30 mi
