Manitou Passage Lighthouse

Manitou Passage Lighthouse

Last lighthouse for a bit… maybe.  The light(house) in the middle of the Manitou Passage about three miles off the mainland and off the shore of North Manitou Island.  As you can sort of see, it’s a residence for birds now and thanks to that it stinks pretty horribly and is worth going on the windward side of when passing – if you look at the GPS tracklog you can see the space between the coming and going paths in the middle of the passage where we did just that.

Round Island Lighthouse

Round Island Lighthouse

This picture is so-so, but it fits the lighthouse theme… the Round Island Lighthouse opposite Mackinac Island across the channel there.  I’ve successfully watched fireworks from this lighthouse, which I highly recommend.
