In the palm of her hands

Well the vacation is over so it is now time to share some vacation pictures.

Caila and I went to Bodie Lighthouse with the intent of climbing to the top.  We were not able to climb to the top (thank god!) since the tickets were sold out.

But she was able to lift it with her bare hands which is indeed a rare feat.

Just a tad bit heavy

Lighthouse in Corolla, NC

On my way to get information on the wild horses in Corolla  my niece and I came across a lighthouse.

Currituck Beach Lighthouse was completed on December 1, 1875. This is still a functioning lighthouse that is owned by OBC (Outer Banks Conservationist).

Some facts:

  1.  There are 220 steps to the top
  2. 1,000,000 bricks
  3. Base of the lighthouse is over 5 1/2 feet thick
  4. Top of lighthouse is 3 feet thick

Check out Wikipedia for more facts.
