Foggy Day

This little lighthouse is on Kalamazoo Lake in Saugatuck/Douglas, Michigan. I don’t know if it was really built to be a functional beacon or just kind of a picturesque decoration to the marina area of this small lake. The Kalamazoo River connects this harbor to Lake Michigan so small ships could come in. The ship is the S.S. Keewatin, a 100+ year old steamship that was docked here when it was saved from the scrap yard many years ago and has been operated as museum. It had become an icon to the area, but this year it was sold and towed to a Canadian port in Ontario, where it was originally from, to be restored.

So glad they saved the steamship... and glad you caught it while it was there! :)
