My family rented a beach house on Lake Michigan for a week this summer. It was beastly hot during the day...almost too hot to even walk on anything resembling sand. So we went on a road trip one day to see a lighthouse in Michigan City that dated back to the mid-1800's. Exciting stuff for me!
We weren't able to actually go inside the lighthouse, but we could walk out to it. I found it ironic that when I turned around and walked back from the lighthouse to shore, the bottom picture was my view. Not so lovely.
