The Lighthouse Hunters Experience:
On June 28, 2010 we were aboard the 110 foot Keweenaw Star
with 83 passengers and 5 crew. This was our second day of the cruise and departed from Hammond, IN. We photographed 21 lighthouses for the day going 132 nautical miles. We saw in order Hammond Intake Crib, Calumet Harbor, 68th Street-Dunne Intake Crib, Chicago SE Guidewall, Chicago Harbor, Four Mile Intake Crib, Carter H Harrison-William E Dever Intake Cribs, Wilson Avenue Intake Crib, Groose Point, Waukegan Breakwater, Kenosha North Pier, Old Kenosha, Racine Reef, Racine Pier lights, Wind Point Racine, Milwaukee Breakwater, Milwaukee Pier, North Point, Kevich, Port Washington Breakwater. We had another fantastic day on the water with our fellow lighthouse hunters from GLLKA
. We were told about crib lights from our narrator, Terry Pepper. All four of the crib lights on this trip were new to us and many others.
