#207 Evanston’s Shore of Lake Michigan

This Saturday, I headed to a random place in Evanston, The Grosse Point Lighthouse. The place was just fine, well maintained over the century, but what caught my eyes, and certainly my camera’s lens, was the beautiful Lake Michigan once again :)

Wanna see the pics?

I stay pretty close to the Northwestern University, and the city of Evanston is kind of centered around the NU Campus. NU was founded by John Evans, and the city of Evanston owes its name to him!

The Grosse Point Lighthouse was the first lighthouse on the North Chicago shore and is a historic place.
