Another fabulous piece of history on Silver Lake, MI. Following the loss of the Schooner Pride in 1866, public outcries for a light at this locale were finally heard and heeded.[20] Congress approved funding in 1871, but construction was delayed until 1874 due to lack of roads to the site.[4] The station was originally named "Petite Pointe Au Sable Lighthouse", which is the name used on most official records; officially, however, the name was changed in 1910.[21] Although commonly called "Little Sable Point Light", it is listed by the National Park Service as "Little Point Sable Light".

Smooth seas do not make skilful sailors.

Rita - A beautiful image. The people relaxing on the beach at the foot of the lighthouse gives the photo its perspective. Lighting, horizontal framing, and flow of lines gives this the feel of a painting. Kudos! Thad

If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera. ~Lewis Hine The Earth without art is just 'eh'.
