Live Saving Station-0895

Life Saving Station at Glen Haven: at one time, these tracks ended much closer to water’s edge, and were used to launch rescue boats.

Life Saving Station at Glen Haven

We are in for a beautiful Monday. Glimpses from Sunday’s hike in the park with Capt. Joel Petersen, who spent Saturday setting nets out of Leland.

I wondered about the tracks too – actually love seeing descriptions or labels of where, what, I’m looking at…. Some are lost in the mists of my mind as my childhood was so long ago. Others, I just never knew, so don’t know what I’m seeing, Even so, I must say, the pictures are always absolutely GREAT! SO, thank you for my daily dose of Leelanau County.

The tracks were to carry lifeboats from their sheds down to the shore, I think on wheeled carts.
