    The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. they recommended a restaurant just next door (name escapes me but the food was unforgettable).
    I would gladly stay here again and recommend it to anyone going to the lighthouse for a visit as it is just around the corner from it.

    ... to its present location. The Principal Keeper's Quarters, Double Keepers’ Quarters, oil house, cisterns, and sidewalks, which were moved during February, March, and April, awaited the lighthouse. In the summer of 1999, the lighthouse was moved nearly 2,900 feet from its original location.

    ... the beach for well over an hour, finally we caught a glimpse of the owl. She was resting on the beach with her eyes closed, but not totally asleep. We got some pictures before some sea gulls started harassing her and she flew to another spot on the beach. I think a few of these gulls may have made a recent meal for her. She is a mighty hunter, but quite outnumbered by the gulls. With the Cape ...

    ... we felt safe. however , it rained for the next 48 hours so we spent a couple of days in the rig. on the third day, we dried out. randi went to te laudromat, and i took everything outside to dry off, including our foam mattress cover. and we did learn that the road from hatteras back up north was closed after we got across it.

    so now we are ready to move back onto the mainland and continue southward.

    ... and a forest of post-holes (at least 417 but more likely 500 ). The finds are very early C17th and show transfer of European material to the native peoples. The prize finds we're a 1604 Nuremberg counting token and a 1kg mass of smelted copper. As so few Europeans had visited N America at this time, there are relatively few ways that the goodies could have got here.......change a few names and implements and it's just a big game of Cluedo......except much more ...
