DeTour Reef Lighthouse . . .

I'd like to be a lighthouse

All scrubbed and painted white.

I'd like to be a lighthouse

And stay awake all night

To keep my eye on everything

That sails my patch of sea;

I'd like to be a lighthouse

With the ships all watching me.

I'd Like to be a Lighthouse

by Rachel Lyman Field

NOTE: Built in 1931, DeTour Reef Light is located a mile offshore in northern Lake Huron at the far eastern end of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. This positions the lighthouse between DeTour Village and Drummond Island at the mouth of the strategic St. Mary’s River that connects to Lake Superior. For more information or to book a reservation for a tour go to:
