We went to visit two lighthouses here. One is the Old Michigan City lighthouse which is Indiana's oldest lighthouse.
This lighthouse is back from the lake a little bit which would explain why they built the second lighthouse.
It was a lovely walk out to the lighthouse - the pier was actually a little bit wider than the last one we went on and the water was a lot calmer! There wasn't a lot of room to walk around the lighthouse just a small staircase and a ledge on the other side. Yikes!
I don't think they'd cleaned up from the winter yet!
When we were looking at the old lighthouse we heard a horrible sound - sort of a cross between an emergency vehicle and the warning sirens sounding - and realised it was the warning that this bridge was going to open to let the sailboat pass through. I'm not sure how often the bridge opens but it was a bit of luck that we were able to see it. A fun ending to our visit.
