The UP is an adventure.

We had a great time in the UP; the boys loved it! And we've already started compiling a list of stops that we want to make for next summer!

Here are some pics of our visit to the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point in Paradise, MI.

The Edmund Fitzgerald "Big Fitz", the most famous ship to ever enter the waters at Lake Superior....sank on November 10, 1975. The bell was raised from the wreckage in 1995 and a bell inscribed with the names of the lost crew was put in its place.

A memorial of sorts to three of the lost crew members on the beach of Lake Superior.

The boys loved the beach. The water was very cold and stretched as far as the eye could see.

The lighthouse. We toured the structure of the house, but they stop you short of going up into the tower of the lighthouse. But I climbed the steps and took pics anyway...I'm a rebel like that.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post of our trip to Tahquamenon Falls State Park!

My husband would love that museum. We'll have to make it there someday!
