Brown lighthouse


I couldn’t help it. Yesterday I mentioned the Currituck lighthouse toward the northern part of the Outer Banks. Tada! Here it is.

The compound’s only open for the high season, so we could only scrutinize it from the street. It seems somewhat far inland now; I don’t know if the shore has moved away from it since it was built.

    What can brown lighthouse do for you?

    Maybe it’s far inland b/c the land is stable there. They had to move the Cape Hatteras lighthouse farther inland, as the sea was eating away too close to the base.

    Probably. Lighthouses, I guess, are all about location, location, location!
