Since it wasn't too far away from St. Joseph, I decided to head over to South Haven as well. They have a pretty nice lighthouse as well. And I was imagining it wouldn't be as icy as the last time I saw it.
Sure enough, it wasn't. Like many of the lighthouses along Lake Michigan, it has a catwalk.
It gets fairly windy on that side of the state and if you needed to get out to the lighthouse itself, it would be nice to avoid those waves.
Looking down the channel marker pier. I really didn't have much of a reason to get closer, so I was content to look at it from here.
I do like the lighthouses on this side of the state. They are pretty cool looking and coupled with the fact that Lake Michigan looks pretty nice, it makes for a nice setting.
However, Lake Michigan was still fairly angry.
Looking down at the channel entrance. I'm not sure if I can catch a boat here but I wouldn't mind doing so some day.
Then I went to the other side of the river, to get some pictures there.
