Currituck Lighthouse





Number of steps: 214
Height to focal plane of lens: 158 feet
Height to top of roof: 162 feet
Number of bricks: approximately one million

Just 40 minutes north of Nag's Head, we logged our fourth lighthouse this past weekend. Seth is keeping track, and we still have three more to explore. At this rate, we just might do it all in one summer.

LOVE Currituck! I hiked everyone of those dizzying stairs - absolutely worth the climb. You are so wise to visit all the lighthouses. On my list of things I long to do (and will do!) - tour all of NC lighthouses. Your pictures are getting me excited to do just that!

They certainly are magical, aren't they?

I love the b/w collage. You should frame that. Looks like Seth has a little brother! Just what you always wanted!

Has this always been a goal? It's definitely a fun one!
