Wordy Wednesday: Cape Lookout Lighthouse

Sorry this is a day late. I meant to post yesterday but got busy doing other things. Saturday we had the privilege of visiting Cape Lookout Lighthouse. This is the first time we were able to go onto the island. The last time we went there signs were posted about the government shutdown. I’m not sure why it’s taken us so long to make it back out there. It’s a nice place to visit and I hope we can spend more time there exploring soon. I can’t imagine what life must have been like on the island in the 1800s. Sounds like a lonely yet beautiful place to be. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

We didn’t see any wild horses while we were at Cape Lookout, but we saw one on Carrot Island on our way back to the Beaufort boat ramp. He was out there by himself feeding at the water’s edge.

Wordless Wednesday: Osprey at the River

I took this picture last summer at the river. An osprey had built a nest in this old tree that was in the water. I didn’t get too close but the bird’s protective instincts kicked in and it began to circle the nest.  This is just another one of those times when I wish I had a nice camera to capture the details. Still, I think it’s a beautiful shot. I love living in North Carolina!
