Everyone loves lighthouses. They're always a welcome thing to talk about and read about. Thank you for sharing this one! It almost looks like it has an island all its own. :)

Honolulu-Thanks for stopping by! I love lighthouses, and plan to do more stories about Great Lakes lighthouses soon.
This particular lighthouse was interesting because it was so close to Chicago. You usually think of lighthouses as being in more remote locations. I'll also be interested to see if they finally open this one to the public. Lighthouses out in the water like this (and one in Ashtabula, Ohio, which they also are talking about opening to the public) are quite expensive to open and keep open--partly because they don't draw as many visitors paying a fee to visit as more easily accessible lighthouses on land.
