Had we realized all there was to see in the immediate area, we would have planned more than one night. As it was, we arrived near the weekend, and the site was only available for the night.
We parked the RV and went for a drive.
The bedrock here has been covered by at least three massive continental glaciers in ancient times. As the mammoth glaciers moved in from the north, they gouged deep tracks in the bedrock. The glaciers were well over a mile thick here, and when they were finally gone, the Great Lakes had been created.
Here you can still walk on the tracks left by the glaciers.
An attractive State Park just down the road has Marblehead Lighthouse as its focal point.
We did not ascend to the top, but did enjoy the surrounding grounds and small museum. The lighthouse was built in 1821 and stands 65 feet tall. Still operational, the flashes from its beacon every 6 seconds can be seen from 11 nautical miles away. The nearby cottage houses the museum.
We stopped at a local orchard where we purchased fresh sweet corn and locally grown peaches for our dinner. Ummmmm.
