Corolla Lighthouse

 Yesterday Richard and I stopped by the Corolla Lighthouse for a few minutes.  We are ALL going back today as that was one thing that we all had planned on doing anyway.  It was beautiful!  Built in 1875, it is just awesome!  We didn't make the climb to the top as we just stopped by quickly and not to mention that is has 200+ steps and I just don't know if my back and hips can handle that many steps.  
 A few more beautiful pics of the grounds around the lighthouse...
 And last but not least, a pic as we were driving the 8 miles back up the beach. 
I had a few ask where this was... Mom rented a beach house for the whole family on Carova Beach which is on the 4x4 section of the Outer Banks of the coast of NC.  It is only accessible by 4x4 and is very natural other than the houses.  There are no stores or restaurants in this area but are only 8 miles away in Corolla.  The only building that I have saw in this area that is not a beach house was the fire department.  The wild horse roam freely and most mornings they are in our yard.  It is just awesome and so relaxing.  This is by far the best vacation that I have ever had.  14 of us in one house and everyone is getting along great, we are just all glad to be together.  Truly Blessed!

it is just beautiful! you are very lucky to get this spot I don't know if I would be able to do 200 steps either - sometimes you have to decide do you want to do it and be in pain the rest of your trip or skip it and enjoy the rest of the days there!

What a beautiful place for a relaxing vacation with family. Hope you all are still friends after all staying in the same house. ----Just kidding! ---- I really do think it is wonderful your family can do that. Sounds like fun. ---"Love"

Such a beautiful place. Sounds ideal, Krisite (if you family gets along, which yours seems to do very well). : )
