Shipwreck Tours

  We took  "Glass Bottom Shipwreck Tours" . "trip takes about 2 hours, visiting 2 different shipwreck sites, rock cliffs... historic lighthouse, and ...Grand Island & Munising Bay".   Now for picture taking purposes it is so tough to get the pictures of the shipwreck pieces to show up??? You are looking through the bottom of the glass boat, now it is great to see, but not clear at all in the photos. Sadly, had to delete them all, nothing was clear or even made you know what you were looking at??! Fuzzy. You just have to be there and enjoy. So cool. Glad we got the chance. WAY FUN!! I know I've told ya that my hubby and I love Michigan matter what section. I went online to get the bit about Michigan but couldn't find it, now if you didn't realize all or maybe I should say most folks who are from Michigan, will use their hand to say where to go, visit, and see where they live. We can't do that with Virginia. Makes me always smile. I just did

Great Lakes Shipwreck Musuem

Great Lakes Shipwreck Musuem, Paradise, Michigan "The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society was founded in 1978 by a group of divers, teachers, and educators to commerce exploration of historic shipwrecks in eastern Lake Superior, near Whitefish Point in Michigan's scenic Upper Peninsula" I gotta say, we really try not to anyone in our photos we take to share online, but someone's foot is in there, I mean there is no reason or whatever not to put it in there ...can you say who it is?? KIDDING, but I'm seriously that is never our thought to use someone's photo in our website without their permission but what are you gonna do?? I mean I've gone to the put of not using the photo 'cause I don't wanna or because (can I take a moment to say that I think it is hilarious when google "spell check really doesn't enjoy me using "gotta" (got to), "gonna" (going to) or "wanna" (want to),

Crisp Point Light

  Crisp Point Light, Michigan "coast of Lake Superior between Munising and Whitefish Point in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan." The road into this lighthouse, was not in the best condition, but it was well worth it ...GORGEOUS!! So amazing. Look at that view. Me, leaning over touching the water of Lake Superior, Wow WEE, it was cold. No joke, we both had on our heavier coat, the winds were wild that day. Cannot imagine the winds and weather this lighthouse as seen??! We love visiting lighthouses, and this beauty was a FREE visit, yeah, they do ask for a donation. The views were just breathtaking. A real keeper. Are you a fan?? Thanks, for stopping by, Hope you are well today, you take care. Beth ( ;
