Cape Hatteras Lighthouse


The lighthouse at Cape Hatteras is an iconic view of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The lighthouse has actually been moved about 1/4 mile from it's original location when beach erosion threatened the structure. In this video you can see what was involved in moving the structure. here






These stones formed the original foundation of the lighthouse. Each of these stones is engraved with the name of the lighthouse keepers who manned this historic structure.

  3. I visited Hatteras before they moved the lighthouse. The ocean was starting to take over the site. They had plans to move it and I thought they would be impossible to carry out.

  5. That was quite feat of engineering, moving a lighthouse. It takes me too much time to move my body each morning. Thanks for the linky Sue.
