Fun historical landmark on Ocracoke. Make sure you see it in the daytime, and then go back at night to see the light!

This is a beautiful lighthouse. I have never had the opportunity to go up inside but I visit every year I go to Ocracoke. The cats there are always friendly and the lighthouse is lovely when it is lit up at night.

Pretty place with history. It was open today and stafffed by volunteers. You can't climb it, but nice to learn the history.

When you visit the lighthouse make sure you go at dusk. The beautiful sunset with the light at the top makes for a fantastic photo op!

It's off the side of the road. It's on private property. It's worth a look, but there's not much to it. You can take a few pictures and say you've been there.

Throughout our trip to OBX, I keep dragging my husband to each lighthouse. They are all beautiful in their own way. We couldn't go inside but it was nice to admire.
