Yesterday we decided to hit the next lighthouses on our list up in Ludington. It is about 146 miles away so quite a drive. On our way up we decided to stop again at Grand Haven Lighthouse. Last time we were here was back in early April (see below)
We couldn't walk along the walkway at all, the lake was coming up and over. Yesterday was a lot calmer.
What a difference a couple of months make!
The next on our list was Ludington North Breaker Lighthouse. There is half a mile walk out to this one.
This one was open to the public and we walked up to the very top.
I did not like these steps. They were like ladders and quite steep! The view was amazing though.
This one was enclosed at the top so you can see the bugs and reflections!
The final one on our list for the day was Big Sable Lighthouse. This is just a few miles up the road from the last. There is a 1.8 mile walk to the lighthouse. The sights are just beautiful. I didn't realise there would be a lot of dunes around here too.
And finally a peek in the distance!
And around the corner the whole lighthouse came into view.
The tower looked quite intimidating!
But up we went!
These stairs were spiral. There were 137 of them Phew. Quite a climb!
The views from the top were amazing! I don't like heights so I was very pleased with myself.
What a great day out! My foot/ankle was not happy at the end of the day, but it was well worth it. Next weekend is camping. I haven't been camping for about fifteen years and that wasn't in a tent! Should be quite an adventure!
