After a few miles, the lighthouse was within view. And what a lighthouse it was! Magnificent to behold, treacherous to climb, and absolutely terrifying was the view from the top. But it was amazing.
A tour will tell you all there is to know about the lighthouse + more. It was informative and interesting- but I have a thing for lighthouses, so maybe it's just me...
The first lighthouse I ever visited was in Georgia. It was abandoned & I had to take a sea-kayak to get on the island it was perched on. It could only be explored during low tide, after that, there was not an inch of land to anchor your vessel. Although abandoned, it was not nearly as scary as Big Sable- which is actually cared for- quite lovingly I would say.
Having trudged through the quicksand and tides to get there, opting to take the pathway back seemed like the intelligent choice. It was.
