Hi T Jacobs!Busy isn't the word:) At times overwhelmed is more like it:( But I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel so feel relieved! Now on to more important things... The lighthouse is in a state park and has been restored. Here is a link to the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse website with tons of info for anyone interested.

Thanks JUD! You are most welcome...it was a pleasure!

It is a beautiful place Marbiz. Lighthouses just seem to be hard to resist.

Thanks Jean! I couldn't resist this view from the lake's side with the gray rock wall and the lilacs...even tho I was naughty and ignored the sign. One of the benefits of the off season:)

What a cool lighthouse! Why would you need a lighthouse when at one of the Great Lakes though? Would there be any sailors? :)

I would love to be there!

Thanks Norrel! It was wonderful weather the whole time we were there. Much sunnier and warmer than expected.

Hi Liam! The site on the lighthouse said that in the early 1900's Door County had more lighthouses than any other county in the US. Guess that is because the whole county is a huge peninsula sticking out in Lake Michigan. Definitely there would be sailors from all over the world as there is a lot of shipping on the Great Lakes. One of my cousins was even stationed on Lake Michigan part of the time he was in the Navy. Yes, you would definitely love it.

Joy: I couldn't wait to show this to Ma! Ma and I are great lighthouse enthusiast often scheduling entire vacations around them. Twice we have visited most of the LH's around Lake Michigan and twice we have visited the LH's of Door County. Door County is unlike any other place and given the opportunity, we will visit again. It's once of those places that calls you back again and again. We well remember Eagle Bluff LH and love the perspective rendering you have here. I wish we could share ours, however alas, they are on film and I'm just not willing to go through the scanning processes and necessary adjustments to make them presentable for Panoramio. It's funny the things one remembers about certain places. This LH occupies a very scenic bit of land. However, the thing we remember most is the tourist with the largest dog we have ever seen. The owner assured us he was just a baby and harmless, never the less, one could not help but glance over the shoulder often. We love the excellent Maritime Museum and the abundant farm and dairy lands. Our favorite LH in Door County is Cana Island. On our 1st visit, we braved the very cold water in the channel but the last time we were there, the lake levels were low and we could walk across dry pebbles. Eagle Bluff is not the only LH of this design. It is quite distinctive and there are several others very similar. People knowing us, often ask what is your favorite LH? Lighthouses are like your children......they are all different but you love them all the same.

So good to hear from you Ma&Pa Moose! Sounds like you are very familiar with Door County. So glad I could bring back some fond memories. I know what you mean about the scanning process. I have tons of the same. I loved your story about the huge dog. It is funny the things that make the memories come alive and become unique. What a good quote about LH and children! Thanks so much for stopping by! It is always great to hear from you and read your wonderful comments!

Thanks GGR! Sharing is what Pano is all about...glad you like this one!

How did I miss this one...I love it!

joyfotos on June 5, 2010

Thanks! It is pretty popular...think a shot of it is on the cover of the tourist association book for Door County. Door County is one of the most popular tourist sites in the Midwest.
