The mouth of the Huron River on Lake Erie was one of the first ports of Ohio to be settled. As early as 1749, a French trading post operated from this port, but it did not survive the Revolutionary War. We were there to enjoy it for a day with family and friends. I love [...]
I've wanted to post this photo for a couple of weeks. I just haven't had the time. This is the view of Lake Erie from the top of the Marble Head Light house. I really like this area and never thought that I would visit it twice in the same year but I did!
Vermilion is a really sweet coastal town. I've photographed its lighthouse in the dead of winter when it was mind-numbing cold. This time the temperatures were at the opposite extreme—the high 90's.

There are two lighthouses at Fairport Harbor. This little lighthouse sits at the opening of Fairport Harbor, which is located on the coast of Lake Erie in Ohio. We had to walk nearly a mile to see it. Once we reached it, we could stay only a few minutes because the wind was so brutal [...]
May the road before you be filled with light and love from heaven above.
