Vintage Lighthouse

Located on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, in the city of Marquette, this vintage photograph features a now automated Coast Guard lighthouse.

Growing up as a child, I lived only three blocks away and spent countless hours on this beach – formerly referred to as Michigan Beach (now, McCarty’s Cove).

This picture is available on several wonderful products in the following shops – check it out:

Hope to see you soon!

    Must have been so much fun growing up so close to this lighthouse. I have to get to the UP soon. 😊

      Yes, the UP is wonderful ~ God’s country ~ with beaches, islands, mountains, water, piers and break walls 🌞 And snow, too ❄️ Thanks for stopping by, Irene & have a great week ahead!

        Okay, you’ve sold me on trip there without the snow. 😁

          😂 Yes, the cold & snow are very real, though so too is the spectacular change-of-seasons autumn foliage ✅

            Autumn sounds perfect. I don’t mind the cold and snow much. I just rather not be the one driving on a road trip with slushy snow or ice. 😏
