With cinnamon residual dancing around in my mouth I pasted the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Park. I looked over to Sharon and suggested we turn around to check out the lighthouse so we swung Cheeky around and pulled into the empty parking lot of this historical site. This lighthouse was not only the tallest lighthouse in North America but it was moved a few years ago. Because of the eroding beach, the state moved the lighthouse and the keepers quarters 1800 feet onto higher ground. The moving of this structure is an incredible feat and was well documented by the park service in a video shown in the museum. But first we climbed the 200 ft high tower and enjoyed the view of the shorelines from above. This lighthouse alerted sailors along the Outer Bank for over 14 miles. If you ever get a chance to be in this area, this is a definitely check this out.

Motoring up the peninsula with our next stop at my Aunt Nita's just outside of Richmond VA. I hadn't seen my aunt in quite sometime so Sharon and I decided to stop by for a visit and dinner. We couldn't stay because Sharon's brother Greg in Leesburg VA was expecting us latter that evening.
