Michigan: Back to the Grand Haven Lighthouse I Go.

Grand Haven is a small Lake Michigan town along the west coat of Michigan. It’s one of the many places I keep going back to over-and-over again because of its beauty. It was the second stop on a recent day of lighthouse, beach and park hopping along Lake Michigan after Muskegon.

I decided on this visit to grab some shots of things I hadn’t really before. Like the sand and…

…dunes. Great views of the lighthouse, pier, Lake Michigan and Grand Haven channel from up-top the sand dunes.

What also caught more of my attention as I was walking on the pier this time was…

…the catwalk that connections the lighthouse to the mainland. I walked underneath and alongside as I descended towards the lighthouses. The catwalk is one of only four left that you’ll find in Michigan.

Reflection shots of the water on the pier that came up from the lake. The winds always seem to be whipping up in these parts.

Of course I’m still going to grab more lighthouse shots, like this one of the red inner signal light.

It was a great time as always hanging along the lake and channel in Grand Haven. To get more information on the lighthouses themselves, as well as photos from my previous visits checkout Michigan: The Lighthouses of Grand Haven.

Also checkout the fun I had at my first stop of this day again in Michigan: Coastal Muskegon on a Winter Day. It was off to Holland next. Stay tuned! 🙂
