Obviously Dan and I are biased about the Outer Banks of NC. We will most likely stay that way. It is what it is.
Here is a photo from the of the Cape Hatteras light house. The light house is well worth a visit. There are 248 steps to the top. As you climb, the walls get closer and closer to you since the light house is obviously skinnier at the top than at the base. There are landings everyÂ flight, so you can rest if you get overwhelmed. Coming down is much harder for me… the spiraling just starts to get to be a bit much about halfway down. I see how this may seem a tad… errr…. horrible? It is. That being said, it’s an amazing view and well worth the climb once you hit the breezy salty air at the top!
