OK, that's just beautiful.  You get to wake up to that view every morning?  Nice!

He he he! That would be a great view, wouldn't it.

Umm ... not to burst anyone's bubble, but that's not the real McCoy. It's a pic of a good model.

If you want to see a pic of the real thing, go to my web site. I have pics of several Michigan lighthouses, including the Tawas Point Light.

Kevin...

p.s. (Sorry, Lew. ;))


EDIT:  I may have to modify my statement. That might be Lew's actual view. :shock: What I meant was that isn't the actual lighthouse. 8-)

Well. that is my actual view. The real lighthouse is out in front of the house across the Bay. The model shown in the photo is a 1"=1' scale of the lighthouse tower that I got through John (WXWP at Lighthouse Weather ) from a guy in Delaware who builds lighthouse models. The keeper's house I built using dollhouse materials. The model sits next to the Davis weather station.

I'm just happy if I wake up each morning. The view is a bonus. :-)

That is an awesome view! Wow, am I envious!

That is also a very cool model. For a school project this last fall my son built a model of the Tawas Point lighthouse (well, guess who actually did much of the work ... mom and dad :lol: :roll:). I designed the conical tower to scale (the math part), and he selected various shapes (mini cereal boxes, etc.) for the rest. We hot-glued it all together and painted it. We left it out for show over the holidays for visitors to see; naturally it has since been relegated to the basement.

I'm just happy if I wake up each morning. The view is a bonus. :-)

He he he. How true for many of us.

Take care!
