Split Rock Lighthouse, 2011

We got to go with Caleb's family to spend a few days on Lake Superior just before Thanksgiving.  We had a wonderful time--restful and interesting.


Such a handsome structure, and so vital for the ships of its day.

The lens.  It was amazing to learn about this lighthouse--all that went into making it and keeping it going.

 Greta was so excited to stomp around in the snow.  Sweet face.

The home of the keepers

Having a good time, but maybe a little chilly!

The Man

Even Josiah wanted to peek in the window to read the specs

Auntie Ana and her faithful shadow

 The keepers of this lighthouse were strong and determined, faithful to keep their post in this unpredictable frontier.

Great post. The photo looking over the cliff was quite thrilling. It almost made me woozy. I can't imagine what it must've been like in person.

Lovely pictures.
That one of Greta is so sweet. Her nose is so pink and rosy.
I am so glad to see that Josiah has not lost his baby fat yet. He's just as roly-poly as ever. Such yummy faces--both of them!
