Shortly after my husband and I moved to North Carolina we marked off the first of many state adventures by going to Cape Lookout Lighthouse!
I didn’t know what to expect cause I’ve only seen lighthouses in pictures, and what I saw far exceeded my expectations. Pictures are wonderful, obviously I’m all for capturing the moments and places we go in our lives, however there is just something about being there in person that you just can’t replace.
I am continually in awe of the wonderful world we live in and all the beauty it holds! So when I say this place is breathtaking, it seriously is. I could have stared at this historic landmark all day, from every different view! To me it is a testament to the dreams and visions God puts inside each of us. Someone had to think, “there must be a way to keep ships from crashing into the shore” and bam someone thought up the lighthouse. Well technically the first type were beacons (fires on hilltops), and towers built by Rome. If you want to read more you can check out the history of the Lighthouse from britannica.com.
I captured some different views and some other details of Cape Lookout National Seashores. I hope you enjoy!

We plan on visiting several more lighthouses while here on the east coast. http://www.lighthousefriends.com/nc.html has a great visual map, it’s one of the sites I used when planning our trip to Cape Lookout!
