My Outer Banks Vacation Part Seven

Today is going to be my last day in the Outer Banks.  Well, basically it’s my last full day.  We’re leaving tomorrow morning.  Today, we visited the biggest lighthouse on the East Coast — 208 feet tall to be precise — Cape Hatteras Light! Having fun?  Well, take a look at this big view of the lighthouse, it’s sure huge!

My cousin Gabi, Grandma, my brother Eli, and my father climbed the lighthouse, but I didn’t.  257 steps to the top!  Holy cow, that’s big!  If you want to get my view of the lighthouse, check this picture out:

Now, I’m not sure if this insurance policy covers all this information, but I’m going to cover it.  First, I want to tell all of you, this place was not always here.  It was actually moved, and man that would take a lot of work.  The tallest lighthouse on the East Coast?  Phew! That would take a lot of work to move a 208 foot tall lighthouse.  But I pretty much know the process.  First, they got a big rig and then with extra care, they loaded the lighthouse onto it, then they pulled it down the road.  Then they made a big base, then with extra care too, they loaded the lighthouse onto it.

Since Mommy was so proud of Eli for climbing the tallest lighthouse on the East Coast, here’s a picture she took of him:

Well, that pretty much wraps things up for our vacation.  Stay tuned for a “titan” of a ship — The Titanic Entry!
