Open For Climbing

Uploaded: February 13, 2013


I just learned that the Bodie Island lighthouse...on North Carolina's Outer Banks...for the first time in decades expects to be open for climbing this spring. I have photographed it many, many times...and been inside twice but have never climbed it. Hope to do so soon.

A BEAUTIFUL CAPTURE It does however have me wondering WHERES THE OCEAN ??? It's GORGEOUS however it's as if it's on the front lawn of an Antebellum Plantation . Think it makes for a TRULY WONDERFUL SCENE !!!
Your comment on my Gator today had me LMAO !!!
If I had not been told to stay off my feet as much as possible. Well I'd probably seriously considered one last trip to the GATOR SPOT before access was closed for the birds to breed in peace & quiet.
Got a VERY positive exam by the Doc Yesterday so I'm HOPING only 4 more in stead of 7 more weeks in it. Still beats the hell out of the year in the back brace ;O)
Get out & get the Lady that Gift before tomorrow
