Monday Morning Washday

Can you remember when mom washed clothes in a tub like this?  Of course, the flowers would have been an added attraction.

The Guiding Light

The Presque Isle Light house is located on a strip of land along Lake Huron between Alpena and Rogers City in Michigan.  Built in 1870, it is 113 feet above the limestone foundation.  The light keeper's cottage is at the base and now serves as a museum.  The lighthouse was automated in 1970 and is still in service.

Ocqueoc Falls

Don't ask me how to pronounce the name of this water falls.  It is a cool spot to stop and listen to the water falling over the rocks and enjoy nature.

Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

In 1957 when the Mackinac bridge opened, navigators started using the lights on the bridge to guide their ships through the straights.  The lighthouse was retired and the land around it was turned into a public park.  It has been restored and is open for tours.

Valley of Trillium

We made the most wonderful discovery last weekend.  We found the Tunnel of Trees (M-119) and we were fortunate to see about 17 miles of Trillium in bloom.  Not only were they beautiful to look at - they smelled wonderful.  I have never seen such a massive display of wildflowers.
