More of Our Lighthouse Trip, Part 5

This is Sturgeon Point Light, in Alconaco, Michigan on Lake Heron.
This is the very first watercolor I ever attempted back in 2003 or 2004. First ever seen by anyone but my immediate family.
We spent quite a bit of time exploring the beaches of this lighthouse and came across animal tracks in the sand, here is one of them. We are thinking its a bear track, and very glad he wasn't there when we were. : ) I have great respect for wild animals!

This other pic is of my husband. He ran up and down the beach for about a mile, looking for more animal tracks. This was a beautiful day with sweet memories.

Here is the new Presque Isle Lighthouse, in Michigan on Lake Huron. This first pic is from the view as you're driving up to it. Pretty regal looking.
Here's another view of the same lighthouse.

This is the old Presque Isle Lighthouse. The two were built about 10 years apart, because this first one was too short to really be seen well.
