2012/221: McCarty’s Cove

McCarty’s Cove is in Marquette, Michigan, which was one of our vacation destinations this summer because it was more or less central to several other places we wanted to visit, and it was much more convenient to just stay at a hotel there for a few days instead of checking into a new one every day.
On our first evening there, we drove along Scenic Drive in search for the Marquette lighthouses. This is about as close as we got to Marquette Harbor Lightstation because it is U.S. property and maintained by the Coast Guard. Tours are available, but it was too late in the evening, and the fences and gates were locked.

    • It could have been…..if it wasn’t for all the people on the beach 😉 It’s a public beach, they even have life guards.

    I love when lighthouses are acutal ‘houses’. They aren’t like that around here.

    • So do I, Doreen. They’re not all like that around the Great Lakes either, but a lot of them are.

  4. We paused here the last time we were in Marquette, Michaela. It was a hot evening and folks were swimming… Seems like I posted blog photos of it, but can’t remember when and where.
