Whitefish Point - Lake Superior
Atop the UP of Michigan is Whitefish Point...and its operational lighthouse & museum!The place holds lots of history.
On the beach at Whitefish entire trees have washed ashore in "the gales of November" as Gordon Lightfoot so neatly put it.
In addition to Whitefish......you can drive, as did we, down to the lower end of Whitefish Bay and see Iriquois Lighthouse....built in the 1870s, and functional until a couple of decades ago.The beach and waves there are as interesting as Superiors at Whitefish Point.
Lovely day, some fine food, and a neat drive.
