5 Lighthouses in One Day

The conference gave us breakfast with was also good and then to the rest of the conference with ended at noon. I then took the other 3 from my college to the airport and drove to Virginia Beach (David: I thought of you while I was here). There were 2 lighthouses on a military base so my car had to be inspected which was no problem. The 2 lighthouses were close to each other.

The Old Cape Henry Lighthouse

was the 1st lighthouse commissioned by the US congress. I got to walk up the over 200 steps to the top.

It was decommissioned and the Ferneal lens was moved to the New Cape Henry Lighthouse. This lighthouse it still in use.

I then heading down south to North Carolina

to see more lighthouses. Next was the Currituck Beach Lighthouse.

I also got there in time to climb up to the top.

I then drove down the barrier reefs and islands to Bodie Island Lighthouse.

This lighthouse looks very much like Yaquina Head Lighthouse in Oregon.

I then went down to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. By the time I got there it was dark. I still got to see it and take a picture of it.

I then took the long drive back to the hotel.
