Currituck Beach Lighthouse

The Currituck Beach Lighthouse first began shining its light to warn mariners of the North Carolina shoals way back in 1875.  The light is 158 feet tall anc can be seen up to 18 nautical miles out at sea.  Today it is completely automated, but still shining brightly.  (click on a picture to enlarge it)
