      Many moons ago, this lighthouse also served as a residence for the keeper and family. Counting the ‘basement’ (electrical, plumbing), it has 5 levels of concrete, heavy steel and old wooden flooring, as well as stairs and ladders, with a few bedrooms. Nowadays, though, everything is automated. Thanks for your comment, Anita ~ have a great weekend 🙂

    Big Red is beautiful and truly different from the typical lighthouses we see along the coast. Great shot Phil. 📸 🚢 ⚓️

      Thanks, dear Hannah ~ so glad you like it 👍 It is unique and an historic landmark of the area. And, there’s a pier next to it, so people can walk out quite a distance into Lake Michigan. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead, my friend 🤗
