Picture of Charlevoix South Pier Light from water. Using charts and compass we headed north and spotted Skilligalle Island Light at 10:40. We got close enough at 10:55 to take pictures. From there we could spot Gray's Reef and Waugoshance. At 11:22 we were at Gray's Reef Light for pictures. It had a red flashing light and the horn was sounding. At 11:46 we were at White Shoal Light - it's a red and white candy stripe but the red is faded. At 12:00 we were taking pictures of Waugoshance Shoal Light. This one has a bird cage top. It is also to be torn down.
