Whitefish Point

On Tuesday afternoon I was at Whitefish Point to look at the work in progress.  They are repainting the interior and exterior of the lantern.  Due to the high cost of the project, they are painting the skeletal tower in phases – the lantern room this year and the tower structure next year.  The weather was beautiful except for the breeze coming off the lake.  Luckily, the repainted railings had just been reinstalled on Tuesday morning so I felt more secure being out there in the breeze.  Of course the one section that was not installed was the one immediately outside the door to the exterior deck.  I did not take them up on the offer to climb down the ladder (see photo) to the wood platform they had installed to do work on the underside.  Not a job I would want.  But what a view!  More work to be done including another coat of paint, glass replacement, vent replacement, and a lot of those little details.
