Lighthouse Tours    ...scroll down to share comments

Mary Drew at Pasty Central on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 07:31 am:

If you're planning a Keweenaw summer vacation, be sure you head to the tip of the Peninsula and take in the Copper Harbor Lighthouse tour. Carl Kiilunen caught the navy motorwhale tour boat just making its beginning ripples, on one of the many daily trips over. It's quite the experience, motoring over from the Marina to the Lighthouse, you'll get a history lesson from your Captain. Then after docking at Hayes Point, you'll be assisted by a guide, through the 1866 era interior and grounds, where you can check out Michigan's first commercial copper mine site. If you plan on this excursion, allow about an hour and a half to take it all in. It's a real look into the past, including the arrival by boat just as the lightkeepers did 100 years ago.

2 weeks and a day until a long restful vacation at Mclains.
I hope the weather will be better than the 4th's weekend.

By julie b., MI on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 07:43 am:

This is a great tour to take! The boat ride over added to the tour. When we got to the lighthouse dock the guide was delayed - by a bear which was sitting outside the lighthouse door! By and by the bear moseyed off, the guide came down to the dock and the tour of the lighthouse was outstanding! No further encounters with said bear outside the light as we checked out the point. Well worth the time and price!

Good morning everyone!

By mckenneyp, GR MI on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 08:06 am:

26 Days till Vacation in Chassell... Maybe we should go on the lighthouse tour this year. We went many many years ago, but that was before I was married, and I know she has never been there... I think we will have to do that!

Have a great day everyone!

By ed mi on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 08:28 am:

here is a follow up to July 10 story.
Marquette's harbors have been busy. On Friday the tug Billmaier towed the crane barge Schwartz and two barges loaded with rocks to Marquette to continue work on the breakwalls. This is the barge that was shown in the SKY-PIX on Saturday July 10 here on Pasty.com. There is a great picture of the tug/barge entering the harbor on the wwwboatnerd.com site..go to the news page and check July 11 pictures.

How was the Strawberry Fest this year??

By Ron, Michigan on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 08:57 am:

24 days, 9 hours, and 45 minutes until my first trip "back home" since 1987!!!!

By Georgie, MO on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:20 am:

62 days 'till we return to the north country. Hopin' to see a lot of big boats this trip. Do freighters still come to Marquette to load? We have yet to see one any time we've been there. It would be such a thrill. I know, timing is everything!

By Ralph, stuck in Florida on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:24 am:

Leaving in 4 days and will be back to the greatest place in the world THE U.P.

By larryk, nh on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:27 am:

finngal fl: Don't remember that phrase from Reino. Do remember that at that time I could speak a little Finn, and at my Grandpa's house on Saturday morning, not listening to Reino was not an option.

By colleen tx on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:29 am:

One day, I'll do that lighthouse tour!!! G'morning y'all...

By larryk, nh on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:30 am:

b c: WHDF was only on Scott St. in Calumet at that time. The Douglass House studio didn't exist

By larryk, nh on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:34 am:

AL, MI: I'll never forget that phrase. And I remember the disappointment I felt when WHDF opened the Douglass House studios. I just knew that great radio station was leaving Calumet. Even though I grew up in Hubbell, I wasn't happy about the move. Wimple wasn't even on the horizon then.

By larryk, nh on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:38 am:

Ken and Mimi from da UP: Reino did use a lot of Finglish. But listening to him was once of things I looked forward to when I visited my Grandpa. He lived in Raymbeaultown. Wonder how many remember that spelling of what's now known as Rambletown. The SS South American used to have a band on some of its cruises. In the summer of '56 I played alto sax in that band.

19 more wakeups, then Ahhhhhhhhh Vacation

By Rice Lake Gary on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:43 am:

Brad of Canton, Think Gary D. will show?????

By Too darn hot in Georgia on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:44 am:

25 days until we are in Eagle Harbor! YEA!

By Scott on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:55 am:

Back down state after a great 2 weeks in the Keewenaw. Wheather was finally perfect last 2 days. Got in a round of golf at the Mountain Lodge and have the black fly bites to prove it.

By Lesa in Fort Wayne, IN on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 09:57 am:

What a great way to bring back a fun memory...my kids loved the boat ride across the harbor to the lighthouse. We visited there a couple summers ago, and it is still one of my oldest daughter's favorite destinations. Makes me want to come back!

By Cindy in Iowa on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 10:24 am:

Good Monday Morning,

I loved the picutres of Sharon's bear that were shown yesterday. The big wild life in Iowa are our deer; which seem to hunt our vehicles down when the crops come out of the fields in the fall! They will also come up to our decks and back yards looking for a food handout. But the bear on the deck would definitely take the cake for this Iowa girl!

I think there needs to be a Pasty Central web cam--then we can catch a glimplse of the "wild life" there!

Take care and have a good day,

By Russ Gust, Big Bay on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 10:36 am:

Ya dare, dis is a nice site and I gotta pictur dat I think youd like. But i don't no how ta get it ta ya.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 11:06 am:

Just reserved the new Steve Hamilton book from my local library. I see my position is 54 out of 55! Probably due to the fact that it was reviewed in yesterday's Flint Journal. Read his books on a hot day and you're guaranteed to feel the temperature drop! I can always feel the cold wind coming off Superior when he describes it. I've only read his latest books which are set in the U.P. I don't think his earlier ones are.

By kmr 5 o's on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 11:18 am:

The Strawberry Fest was a blast. 79 degrees for the parade and Sunny!! Bought a few things at the craft fair, and enjoyed visiting with old friends! Just a lovely day all around.

By Stuart in Michigan on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 11:22 am:

Looks like a nice way to look at Lighthouses.

By Brad of Canton Mi. on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 11:42 am:

To Rice Lake Gary, I believe so.

To all: What are your top 5 things to do while up in God's country?

By Brad of Canton on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 11:44 am:

Oh yeah ask the pilot of that boat how scarey it was to be underneath the fireworks on the 4th. Embers were raining down nearly upon him and his crew.

By Mark in Coulee Dam on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 11:51 am:

Here's a great site for info on Lake Superior lighthouses....including the Copper Harbor Light.


Those must have been some intrepid souls that staffed the lights in the early days.

By Jiggs in California on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 11:53 am:

I'm repeating this from yesterday as most people probably won't go to the Shoebox Memory this morning. My grandfather worked in L'Anse for a year or two as a bookkeeper about 1921-23. From the histories I've read, Henry Ford didn't get involved with the lumber business there until the late 20s or early 30s, when the "woodies" were manufactured. But my grandmother's story was that he "worked for Henry Ford" in L'Anse. Does anyone know how early Ford was employing people there?

By Yooper in Westland on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 12:10 pm:

I can't remember the last time I actually watched the Strawberry Fest parade. For as long as I can remember I have always been in it as some novelty or another or I was marching with the CHS Band. Some year I'll have to get up there and experience it from the sidelines. :)

By Yooper in Westland on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 12:15 pm:

My top 5 (in no particular order):

1. Find a beach or dock and sit and listen to the water.
2. Drive out to Copper Harbor on US-41 (not quite the same since they flattened some of those hills and curves) and back on M-26.
3. Spend a night camping in the Huron Mountains.
4. Visit the local establishments (fish bowl anyone?) "uptown".
5. Visit with friends and family lucky enough to be living up there. :) This list could go on forever!

By Mary in Maryland on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 12:38 pm:

Two weeks and counting.... Can't wait to leave the humidity. To find out when the boats dock, look in the Marquette newspaper. The names and times were always posted.
My favorite things to do near Marquette, in order of succession will be:
1. Watch the shoreline.
2. Visit family.
2. Pick blueberries.
4. Drive to the Island. (Repeat from #1.)
How's the berry crop coming along this year?

By Ken, Kalamazoo, MI on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 12:40 pm:

We're leaving this Wednesday for 2 weeks camping at McClain S.P. Can't wait to be up there.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 12:41 pm:

1. Visit Silver River Falls between L'anse and Skanee.

2. Tour the Keweenaw: the Jampot, shoreline and Brockway drives, and lots of other sites.

3. Watch the weather over Keweenaw Bay from our living room window: I don't care if its sunny, rainy, stormy, foggy, or windy!

4. Eat! Discovered the Ambassador and the tostada pizza from my pasty cam friends! Lots of other favorite restaurants, too.

5. Take evening drives to enjoy the wildlife.

By Tom TC Mich on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 12:56 pm:

QUESTION: does anyone out there know how to eat-or harvest wild gooseberries? I'm 70 years old and only have vague memories of them and the wild cranberries. I think gooseberries ripen in late August.....not too sure....help !

To Marsha, Genesee/Aura

All of Steve Hamilton's novels have a UP connection. A Cold Day in Paradise was his first. I hope you get Ice Run soon. I had better luck at our library.

By Brad in Wi. on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 02:39 pm:

Ice cream at Lindell's..

By Me on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 02:52 pm:

I read Ice Run the day it came out in June. It is very good, but the first, A Cold Day in Paradise is still the best.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 03:54 pm:

You're right, Bob. It's Joseph Heywood that has the earlier books that I don't think have a UP connection, such as the Berkut.

By Rose on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 04:15 pm:

By ert, GA on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 04:39 pm:

Tom TC -- I'd never seen real gooseberries until I ran into some on an island in Maine. They were beautiful. I've heard of gooseberry jam, and I imagine you could make pie or cobbler from them using any berry recipe. Sure does make me hungry.

Brad in G B WI: The things we wish we had done! I'll never forget the Jag XK-140 that I could have bought in Louisville, KY, in 1970. Price was $400.00. Thought it wasn't worth it. Oh, My!

If you ever get to the museum in Lake Linden, you'll find 3 things that I know very well. A Friden mechanical calculator and a Burroughs 110 key glass sided adding machine that my Dad taught me how to operate when I was a kid (they came from the Hubbell smelter office) and a copper salesman's sample case that Dad donated. I'm glad it's in the museum.

By smn/Clearwater, FL on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 06:02 pm:

Rose, by the looks of it, all (most) us tourists will be there in August. You will be soooo glad when September comes around and we are all back home. We will have all our pictures and memories, while you are there enjoying it all year long. Save us a pasty or two.....we must hit Toni's and the Jam Pot I am told!

By Hungry on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 06:10 pm:

Does Stil Waters sell pasties only online? Or can I buy
one in person at the facility in Calumet?

By Fran,Ga on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 06:36 pm:

One of the best trips home we ever had was in 95. Nearly every day for 3 weeks we would pick up my sister and her husband,get lunch somewhere and then head off in a different direction.We visited the usual places but we also discovered some places we had never seen before. Our day ended with a great meal at one of the many good places to eat. I videoed it all and enjoy looking at it everynow and then. I sent one copy to Ellen,an elderly former C.C.resident and she really has enjoyed it.

By Yooper in Westland on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 06:46 pm:

I'll be there in September (post Labor Day)!!! :) Maybe I can avoid all the RV's on US-2.

By sweeth tooth junkie on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 06:50 pm:

Anybody know if I can get a Hilltop Sweet roll online?

By steve ristola minnesota on Monday, July 12, 2004 - 06:59 pm:

1 - Enjoy coffee and Trenary Toast for breakfast
2 - Walk along the shores of Lake Superior
3 - Gone fishing, take the boat to Houghton and
listen to the summer concerts
4 - Back home for mom's hot pasty dinner.
5 - Lying on a nice soft mossy mound and looking
at the sunset, and then the millions of stars
and listening to the linden trees as there
leaves are fluttering and it sounds like
castanets that put you in a dream world.

By larryk, nh on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 - 03:30 am:

In WI: My Dad started with C&H as an accountant in the smelter office in 1923. Much later he moved to the Calumet office as chief cost accountant. He was with C&H from 1923 until they closed.

By Kosk in Toronto on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 - 06:42 am:

Good morning from Toronto. We could always
start another top 5 of what we miss the most
when we are away from the UP and the ways
we cope with it. An outsider to this site would
have no trouble figuring out how much the UP
means to us--whether we live there or can
only dream of the time that we will be able to
live there.

By Lori, Commerce Twp, Mi on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 - 08:27 am:

Top 5 to do list, while in the Copper Country:

1. Lake Superior sunsets...
2. Seeing the jet black sky and the twinkling stars while listening to the waves roll in to shore.
3. Munching Ambassador pizza!
4. running the trails through '40 acres', 'up swedetown' and 'the tracks'...
5. bakin in the sauna at China Rd. camp...

By pizza fan on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 - 02:04 pm:

Funny how often Ambassador pizza makes it into the top 5 lists!

By Tracy, WI on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 - 11:22 pm:

Just 1 week until I am there with my daughter who hasn't stepped foot in the UP yet. What I miss most....

Clean fresh air
Watching The Clear clean blue lake
Swimming in the Clear clean blue lake
Listening to the Clear clean blue lake while
watching the stars and laying in the sand
Hiking around Presque Isle Park
