While I was exploring the area and visiting the gift shop a bus pulled in from Minnesota!!
I then headed over to Seul Choix (pronounced Sis-shwa) point lighthouse on Lake Michigan located in Gulliver 14 miles east of Manistique, the Haunted Lighthouse! Though I never saw any ghosts.
I then drove over to the Manistique light house, intending to walk out on the pier like I did a few years ago. But either they have piled up more huge stones, or I walked over them last time. This time with my back and left knee acting up I wanted to go out but my body said oh no you’re not. I listened to my body and used my 300 zoom lens to get some photos.
I have placed all my pillows in bags with a description of each one! This will help to protect them so they stay clean and dry for my customers.
I have placed my woven throws in bags with a photo and description of each one inside the bag! This will keep my throws clean and dry for my customers.

I went on-line the other day and entered my name into a Google search, I found myself on Facebook, Pinterest, Etsy, my flicker account,The White Pages and Ancestry.com. Apparently I even wrote a letter to the Stateline observer about paying for abortions... no wait that was Mary Marsh Gautz from Morenci . According to Spokeo there are 10 Mary Gautz's in Michigan, Three in Wisconsin , and one in Ohio, Oh and they seem to think that I'm in my late 60's.
There was the Blueberry website in south haven that used my photo of the Lighthouse I had given them permission to use.
They had images of Mary Gautz but I only saw one picture of myself, the rest were of my art work my son and a lot of strangers. They even had a photo of my Uncles grave in Wisconsin. I had never used ancestry.com before but I then Goggled my maiden name and there was a lot of information , I am defiantly going to check this out further.
You have a friendly heart and are well admired
