This is the Canal Point Lighthouse in Sturgeon Bay, WI. It is located at the end of a long pier that creates a breakwater for the canal that bisects Door County. This canal allows boats to travel from Lake Michigan to Green Bay without having to travel all the way around the peninsula. Even though it’s located on an active Coast Guard base, the public can still walk out to get a closer look. Lighthouses are so cool – now that GPS is ubiquitous, I imagine the day of the lighthouse is long gone.
