Surprise Lighthouse Visit


We wanted to head out for a hike someplace new and chose to head out towards the lake.  We hiked at a nature preserve and then decided to head out to Lake Michigan to explore and get something to eat.  We walked along the lakefront, found a geocache and then headed towards the lighthouse.  Well, what we thought was a lighthouse, but we later learned was a Pierhead Light.  We were able to walk out along the pier all the way out to see it up close.



So very cool!  On the way back in, we ran into a ranger who told us that the pier access is only open one weekend a year and we happened to pick that weekend to go.  Score!



Another big score was a restaurant with swings instead of barstools.  The girls we so happy!
