Wind Point Lighthouse - Racine, Wisconsin

At the end of July, my husband and I went to our 40th High School Reunion in Racine, Wisconsin. This is the town of our youth; and it had been a really, really long time since we had been back. We visited all our favorite places and every house we ever lived in. The whole weekend was so much fun and truly a walk down memory lane. 

When we got home, I had a creative urge to paint a few of those favorite spots... This is the first - the Wind Point Lighthouse on Lake Michigan. It was built in 1880 and is one of the oldest and tallest lighthouses on the Great Lakes. It's a beauty!
