Grand Haven, Michigan

Day 115

Day 115 Grand Haven 4310_Fotor

     Grand Haven is the headquarters of the U.S. Coast Guard on Lake Michigan. Every August the town of Grand Haven honors the Coast Guard with a festival. We were able to tour 6 ships, 5 of the Coast Guard, all ice breakers, and a Canadian patrol and rescue boat. (I can never remember, are they “ships” or “boats”?)

We walked to the end of the pier to view the lighthouse. Day 115 Grand Haven 4281_Fotor

There are 95 operating lighthouses on Lake Michigan.
