Lake Michigan provides us with some beautiful water that you just can’t get anywhere else in the world. This picture was taken during the summer months by the Michigan City Lighthouse. The concrete slabs provide texture and interest to splashing water. It’s quite mesmerizing.
The coastline of Lake Michigan at Michigan City Indiana USA is one of our favorite places to visit. The diverse articles of subject matter keeps our inquisitive brain rolling. Our attention was captured by this Seagull that wanted to play in the water when it was only 20 degrees outside. She sparked our curiosity about Seagulls.
Supposedly, there is a group of birds in the gull or tern family which contains more than 35 species. The group received their name “sea” gull because of their habit of flying around coastal areas or over open water. (Note: if you are ever lost at sea and see a “sea”gull, you know land is sure to be found close by.)
Around Lake Michigan area on the Indiana/Michigan side, three main species of gull are found, the Herring Gull, the Ring Billed Gull, and Bonaparte’s Gull.
We aren’t sure what kind of Gull is in the picture. We just know the Seagulls are enjoyable to watch as they complete their daily missions.
You can see me?
The Lighthouse Joke”
The following is being shared around the Internet as an event that really took place, but it never happened. It’s an old joke like those found in magazines:
Believe it or not…this is the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The Radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on Oct. 10, 1995.
US Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.
CND reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
US Ship: This is the Captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.
CND reply: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course!
US Ship: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS CORAL SEA*, WE ARE A LARGE WARSHIP OF THE US NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!!
CND reply: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
