Bodie Island Lighthouse – North Carolina Thursdays May 9, 2019

I decided to poke around Wikipedia – for this week’s North Carolina Thursdays. I found Bodie Island Lighthouse (or Light Station) – in the above Wikipedia list.

I had cousins who lived in Nags Head and some of them may still live there. I also have a friend who loves lighthouses.
