Chicago Lighthouse

For the Scavenge Challenge -- #15 "Rowboats, tall ships, pirogues, rubber rafts...photograph watercraft of any type."


We were in Chicago today on the Skyline tour and I loved how the sailboat looked next to the lighthouse. Apparently a man lived there for a while, renting it for a dollar a month in exchange for the upkeep of the lighthouse. However, he was fond of throwing parties and had some wild ones there. When the city found out, the deal was over and the lighthouse has been empty ever since.
