Northern Lights

Ok, not the aurora borealis, but a couple of lighthouses along the Great Lakes.

This is the lighthouse at Port Huron, on--oddly enough--Lake Huron.

And this is the Port Burwell Lighthouse on Lake Erie.

DD and I met the gentleman who painted this lighthouse. He does historical restoration painting on old buildings/historic structures and has worked in several countries. We met him at the Old St. Thomas Church where he was refurbishing the doors. We had a terrific visit with him and discovered we had seen a bunch of his work around the area. (More on that in another post.)

Here's a bit of historical info on the lighthouse at Port Burwell:

What a great trip. I live so close to the Great Lakes, but have never traveled around them.

Lighthouses are one of my favorite things to paint. Your pics are downright inspiring!
