During our trip to Tahquamenon Falls, lighthouses were (of course) on the itinerary! In the morning, after breakfast at our hotel, we headed up to Whitefish Point to explore the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and the Whitefish Point Lighthouse! We got our tickets to the museum and for the tower climb, and quickly headed to meet up with the rest of the group. The climb up the tower was pretty easy and it was an amazing view of Lake Superior. We caught some glimpses of Canada up there too! It was a perfect day full of blue skies and blue water. We were so blessed with great weather on this day!
After climbing the lighthouse tower, we checked out the grounds for a bit, explored the shipwreck museum, learned more about the Edmund Fitzgerald (which sunk nearby), watched a video in their little movie theater, and browsed the gift shop. I just love local gift shops! They are so fun. We walked out to Lake Superior for a while, taking in the sunshine, and scouring the beach for pretty stones. After spending some time there, we headed over to Brown’s Fish House for fried local whitefish and fries. It was the last day of the season up there for quite a few restaurants, so I’m glad we made it in time for some local grub!
For our travels, I kept my outfits pretty simple — lots of jeans and flats for wandering around! This brimmed hat came in handy too, because it was really sunny on this day, but I definitely had to hold onto it at the top of the tower. So windy, and I’d cry actual tears if this hat blew away. It’s one of my favorites! I picked it up from Urban Outfitters in Nashville last year, and it’s out of stock, but I’ve linked to a similar one below!
I hope you guys are enjoying our pictures from Tahquamenon Falls! I’m really excited with how they turned out. We rented a camera for the weekend, because we were thinking of upgrading (finally, after 7 years!) and I’m so glad we did. It was so much easier to shoot during the day (usually we avoid it at all costs with the old camera) and having a full frame vs. crop sensor makes the biggest difference. Eric doesn’t have to stand a mile away to snap a photo of me! Haha. We ended up going for the Canon 6D Mark II, so all of these photos were taken with that camera, if you were wondering! I’ll be back on Sunday with a post from another lighthouse we visited. Have a great weekend!
