At any rate, I got Cindy to take my photos for me and she timed it just right in order to get the light on the lighthouse shining while I was waving. So happy about that!
Right in front of the lighthouse is Caswell Beach. It was such a pretty beach but SHEESH the wind just wasn't letting up and I was cold enough up in the dry sand.....no way I was going down there. I was like constantly eating my pony tail - blech!
Ummm, I am just noticing that this next photo makes my butt look big, doesn't it? I'll have to ask Cindy if she used a wide angle lens! I bet she did that on purpose. Oh well, it's mine so no denying it, right? :) LOL!
I really enjoyed reading about the Loggerhead turtles that come to the beach to lay their eggs. Wouldn't it be totally awesome to be there on the beach with one of the darling little baby turtles poked it head out of the sand and started heading to the ocean waters? Oh my gosh, that would be just an amazing experience!!
Next, I read about the lighthouse itself. It was built in 1958 so this year it is 56 years old. This particular lighthouse doesn't have the traditional spiral staircase like I have seen in so many other older lighthouses, but instead it has a series of ships ladders. Crazy, uh? We didn't get a chance to climb this one and with those kinda ladders, I don't think I would have tried. Heck, I get pooped out just climbing the regular kinda steps.....I cannot imagine climbing a series of vertical ladders! NOT.
Finally, I was shivering so badly that I decided to run back to the warm car. I certainly should have come more prepared.....my bad for sure! But seriously, who knew that I should have brought hot chocolate to the beach, lol. ~ Saige ♥
