Ocracoke Lighthouse

The Ocracoke Lighthouse.

Inside the Lighthouse.

The Keeper's quarters.

This week I started my volunteer position with the National Parks Service. I am now opening up the Ocracoke Lighthouse on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 1-3.

I love doing this for visitors and locals alike, and spending the afternoon in one of my favorite places. Come on out and hear a tale or two, take a grand photo, or just stand in awe in one of our nation's oldest lighthouses.

Ocracoke Lighthouse was built in 1823, and still stands true to time as a working, navigational lighthouse.

Sometimes when no one is there, I just sing and let the song echo off the brick walls. If you have a fiddle or mandolin or guitar, bring it along with you to play a tune or so. However, if you have a drum set, better leave it at home!

Until tomorrow.

Perhaps next year; I never seem to get in all the activities that I plan on doing... I would sing in there too; it must sound wonderful!

Robb, next year you must come and sing. It is spectacular. It seems you were not here long enough to catch your breath!
