Gallery: St Joseph North Pier in SL™

This Great Lakes pier sticks out from St. Joseph, Michigan into what is normally a head-on wind – what that means is SPRAY! lots of it!  In the cold months, a delicate sculpture of ice is formed around these brave cast iron and steel sentinels.  The catwalk (raised walking bridge platform) is used to access the lights for maintenance when the weather won’t allow walking on the pier surface.  This light was commissioned in Second Life™ by Keystone Bouchard, who made a film of it for a special anniversary gift to a couple who met there; here’s the link.
