We got up this morning and headed to Fairport Harbor, OH to see a lighthouse on Lake Erie. My Mom has wanted to be able to go into a lighthouse and go to the top so I found one we could climb. There were 69 spiral stairs inside. My Mom and Jeff climbed to the top. The rest of us stayed on good ole' terra firma. The kids started to climb but got scared and turned around and came back down. Below I have posted various pictures from our visit.
