Saturday Sighting: Structures of Note

Earlier in the week, I boarded a ferry to Mackinac Island where no cars are allowed - only horses and bikes. Once a year big shot politicos converge on the island. (They attend a policy conference at the Grand Hotel.)

While I wasn't charmed by the messes the hard-working horses made in the streets, I did like the variety of architecture I saw.

Like the Round Island Lighthouse. What a setting!

Notice the roof made of bark on this historic property located near downtown Mackinac Island.

This palatial Victorian has a water view.

Mackinac Island in the distance.

Back on land, near Mackinaw City, I checked out the McGulpin Point lighthouse. Here's what it looked like, before it was restored.

And this contemporary beach house at The Headlands, a dark sky park. Rent it for your group, and spend a weekend stargazing.

The upside of living in an underpopulated resort area is that there's always something interesting and pleasant to see, either made by God or by man.

Traveling too fast and causing the forklift to tip over. On top of that, it does not pay that well either. Forklift tires made of polyurethane are only suitable for use indoors as they won't be able to withstand rough terrain. 983.553
