On the road today along the Lake Superior coast...
Started at Crisp Point Lighthouse....located West of Whitefish Point
Ended the day at Vermillion Point Lifesaving Station...located between Crisp Point and Whitefish Point along the "Graveyard Coast" of Lake Superior. The station was established in 1876 due the profusion of shipwrecks taking place. Back in the day the cupola was staffed by members of the U.S.Lifesaving Service (later to become the Coast Guard) who lived on site during the shipping season.
