I had to start with a picture of our pea. She is getting so big and is such a love bug. I can't get enough of her.
This year we spent a week at Outer Banks, NC for Thanksgiving with friends. We rented a beach house with a handful of other families and spent our days on the beach. We were also able to check out a couple of the historic lighthouses in the area. The one below is the Currituck. Here are some facts...
Number of steps: 214, Height to focal plane of lens: 158 feet, Height to top of roof: 162 feet, Number of bricks: approximately one million, Thickness of wall at base: 5 feet 8 inches, Thickness of wall at parapet: 3 feet
Of course the boys couldn't get through Thanksgiving day without a turkey bowl. Even the little ones wanted in on the action.
Clint and I had a chance to get to the beach by ourselves...it's not what you're thinking! We took a two man kayak out for a spin and only tipped twice. It was such a rush...although I have to admit I now know why they have the term, "You swear like a sailor!" I know...I couldn't help it!
The current Bodie Island Lighthouse is the third that has stood in this vicinity of Bodie Island on the Outer Banks in North Carolina and was built in 1872. It stands 156 feet tall.
Here is a shot of the 10-bedroom beach house. We packed in 7 families (14 adults and 24 kids!!)
