          ... I think 2 lighthouses out of 5 was okay in 2 days. Judging by the number of ship wrecks , I am not sure that 5 lighthouses is nearly enough...however past stories tell of Pirates (Black beard being one of them), turning lights around , leading aground ships who thought they were following safe light...then ravaging the ships and crew as they lay foundering in shallow ...

          I finally let Harley go but he headed straight for the water to find that crab. We kept having to entice him away from that area as he was fully intent on getting that thing. Eventually he lost interest and we kept going down the beach.

          After we scoured the beach to our satisfaction, we headed home to have dinner. It was ...

We talked to one of the staff that we think was the owner, and expressed our feelings about the place. Turns out his wife has a sister in Ontario, California whom she visits every year for five week stretches. Small world.

          Despite how good it was, mine was so much I couldn’t finish so ...

          ... so just be open minded when you browse what they have to say about a certain country. They make Indonesia sound like a death trap (it's not). And a good guide book is also very handy because you can use it anywhere - I recommend Lonely Planet.

          ... We drove the Honda south to visit 3 lighthouses and see the lower part of the Outer Banks. Most lighthouses had Fresnel lenses when they were built. In 1822 a Frenchman named Augustin Fresnel invented the lens that looks like a giant bee hive with a light in the center. Some were as tall as 12 feet.
