lighthouses Great Lakes Lighthouses
This Beautiful video offers spectacular views of Northern Michigan Lighthouses from the air, land and sea. The towering lights shine through the stormy night skies, warm sunsets and winter squalls. The flowing musical score reflects the seasonal moods of the Great Lakes.

The mystery and lore of lighthouse life is shared through the personal stories of several individuals. Lorraine Paris at the old Presque Isle Lighthouse tells of the "Spirit Light" which glows in her tower every night though all power lines were disconnected long ago. The Coast Guard investigated but has no explanation. Could the kind spirit of her late husband be responsible?

The Fatal Collision of the S.S. Cedarville
In the late-morning hours of May 7, 1965, the S.S. Cedarville, a giant self-loading ore carrier, was attempting to work its way through dense fog in the Straits of Mackinac when it slammed into the Topdalsfjord, a Norwegian merchant ship. Fatally wounded, the Cedarville made a frantic last-ditch attempt to reach safety, only to fail and sink within less than a half-hour of the collision. Ten members of the ship's crew lost their lives.

The Demise of The Daniel J. Morrell
On November 29, 1966, while traveling on Lake Huron on its last voyage of the shipping season, the Daniel J. Morrell, caught in a terrible storm, broke in two and sank beneath the lake's icy waters, claiming 28 of its 29 officers and crew members. Amazingly, one crew member, clad on in under shorts and a peacoat, endured the tragedy, bobbing on a pontoon-style life raft for 36 hours until he was sighted and rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter.

Collision Course:Three Whitefishbay Shipwrecks
Lake Superior has claimed over five hundred vessels in its illustrious maritime history. Some of the most intriguing of these shipwrecks have occurred around the Whitefish Bay area.

Huge commercial vessels have battled the elements on the lake for over a century, with many falling victim to vicious storms and monstrous waves, others, such as the three ships examined on this video, were sunk after terrible collisions on the open water.

Wreck of The Car Ferry, Milwaukee
Fall 1929 would go down in Great Lakes maritime history as one of the roughest seasons on record. At a time when the stock market was taking a plunge and the American economy was heading into its Great Depression, business interests on Lake Michigan were being battered by the furious forces of nature.

The S.S. Milwaukee, one of the lake's many victims, was a huge, sturdy car ferry that traveled regularly from Michigan to Wisconsin. Its skipper, Captain John "Heavy Weather" McKay, was known for his navigational abilities, especially in rough, unpredictable waters. Where other ships would falter in an unforgiving sea, McKay plowed on through.
