What place should I tell about? Which vacation was the best? Should I tell my childhood visit to the magnificent Niagara Falls? Should I relay secret details of our honeymoon and the scratchy sheets at the Palmer House? Or should I recount the many trips to Florida to visit my retired parents in the lovely city of Naples? Should I tell of the educational trip with our sons to our nation's capital, Washington D.C. ? Should I tell of the summer Daddy D and I traveled the state of Indiana taking pictures of wildflowers fulfilling my Lilly Teacher Creativity Fellowship proposal?
Camping with Our Son in 1973, Copper Harbor, Michigan
Several changes occurred at the light station since our first visit. The Edmund Fitzgerald sank off the shore on November 10, 1975. The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum was constructed on the grounds. The quarters at the Light Station were opened for overnight stays to the public. So on our visit in 2005, we visited the museum and stayed overnight in the light station quarters. Watching the ore boats in Lake Superior cross Whitefish Point from the window of our room was awesome. Whitefish Point by the way is just past Paradise, Michigan. If you are looking for beauty, solitude, history, and nature, visit the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
