GLLKA Headquarters has a new sign! Longtime GLLKA supporters, Chuck and Jeri Feltner, were visiting Mackinaw City last fall. Jeri looked up at our building and decided there should be a sign facing Huron Avenue. She and Chuck then graciously donated the funds to do so in memory of our past president Dick Moehl, and our past executive director Terry Pepper. Chuck and Jeri Feltner are legends in the Great Lakes shipwreck-diving community and were key players in the restoration of DeTour Reef Light. Sadly, Chuck passed away on February 21, 2020. The new sign was installed on July 6, and we express our heartfelt thanks to them.

So proud of myself, I just painted this today...we've had it for a long time..
Copper Harbor, Big Bay. Didn't get any outside shots of Big Bay because of the flies! We did an overnight stay in Big Bay lighthouse, which I highly recommend doing! 💗
"Emotional Distancing" - A little more moody than my typical lighthouse image. This is the pier light at Algoma, Wisconsin - on the western shore of Lake Michigan.
