Beautiful Michigan: Whitefish Point on Lake Superior

We got a hotel in St. Ignace, which is in the Upper Peninsula, just over the bridge. Suzanne's grandparents met us in St. Ignace, and we headed north to Whitefish Bay on Lake Superior. It was the second time in my life that I'd seen Lake Superior--the only other time I saw Lake Superior was on a family vacation in 1984 or 1985, when my parents dared me to swim in it. (You can almost never swim in Lake Superior because its so cold, even in August)

Lake Superior is the northern border of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Canada is on the other side of the lake. Lake Superior is the largest great lake, and its also the cleanest and coldest.
Here are Suzanne and Frances with Suzanne's grandparents.
Here is a shot of the Whitefish Bay Lighthouse, near the Great Lakes Ship Wreck Museum. The town where this is all located is called Paradise, and we went into town, so we'd be able to say we had a cheeseburger in Paradise...the restaurant was very... casual. Yes, thats the word... casual.
