What is the Homestead?

Not enough seen yet, but looking forward to it!😍😎👍

It's a beautiful trip along the West side of Lake Michigan in Michigan. It's a wonderful trip , we visited 7 lighthouses.

Everyone one that's not on an island or shoal.

Old Mission Lighthouse in Grand Traverse Bay, so far my favorite
