Lighthouse, Silliness, Not Home Yet

Cape Hatteras lighthouse was our destination.  This also had a lot of steps plus high schoolers took over the lighthouse to go to the top. We really enjoyed the museum that was here.  This lighthouse was moved.
In 1999, the Cape Hatteras lighthouse had to be moved from its original location at the edge of the ocean to safer ground 2,900 feet (880 m) inland, and 1,500 feet (460 m) from the shoreline. Due to erosion of the shore, the lighthouse was just 15 feet (4.6 m) from the ocean's edge and was in imminent danger.

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse was begun in 1868 and finished in 1870, and is the tallest brick lighthouse in the USA.

 I got some pictures from Rachel that she and Sarah took at the Wright Brothers Area.  It was funny watching this picture being taken.  Sarah looked like she was taking Rachel's picture and Rachel was taking Sarah's picture.
 These two were a hoot to watch as they posed together.
 I think Sarah's smiling more than the guy she's posing as, but it is cute!
 What a fun group of pictures from our trip. They will look great in a scrapbook.

This is a new song from 7eventh Time Down called, God is on the Move.  See what you think of it.

This is a common verse to help us remember that this is not our home.  We store up treasures in heaven not on earth.  Steven Curtis Chapman has a great song called, We Are Not Home Yet.

Sorry, no lyrics with this but you'll enjoy it just the same.

Blessing of the Day: Time on the porch listening to the waves.  Storms are brewing this morning. Glad I got out there early this morning.  This is our last day here.  Early tomorrow morning we'll be on our way back home.
