This is really cool!

Go to the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society site
http://www.outerbankslighthousesociety.org
and visit the Lighthouse section.

Click on longitude or latitude on those pages and see what you get. You may have to also hit your refresh button to bring it up.

I'm tentatively planning on using much of this information next March.

We're hoping to finally make our first trip to the Outer Banks. We have seen Lighthouses in every state on the East coast except for Noth Carolina. We just haven't traveled to NC recently and the times we did we either were not into lighthouses or were not in the right area of the state to get there.

Boats, I wish you were closer to the east coast and could come for a visit, and on the otherside of the coin, I wish I could get out to Seabeck.

Besides getting those important directions, folks can also take a look at the the satellite images. Some of the pages, you can actually zoom in close enough to see the cars parked around the lighthouse.

This is a neat add-on to our OBLHS site that Ross in his genius as a webmaster added without me thinking to ask. Kinda doubt I would have thought of it, anyway. :roll:

We hope folks visiting the site which was just recently re-designed, enjoy this added feature and find it helpful. So please come back and visit...if only virtuallyfor now. We can always hope for a real visit!

Oh, Dennis, I hope you can!
Our OBLHS Sping Retreat will be somewhere on the Outer Banks and probably in April, but the date hasn't been set yet. Maybe you could join us for that. 2005's Retreat brought us the walk-in tour of Price's Creek, and 2004's got us a climb of the Bodie Island Lighthouse. You never know what first we'll come up with for 2006!

Please let me know if I can be of some help when you plan your trip.

Judy,

I'll be sure to pick your brain in advance of the trip.

I'll have to do it whenever the Spring Break is from the Community College I work at is planned for. the last two years this has been the week that St Patrick's Day is in.

I suspect at this point ti will be the same week so it will be mid-March that I would be there.

Where is the Roanoke River light in that list? The replica is there but the old lighthouse is not, or am I just missing it?

Well Judy, that just might happen. My wife and I or thinking of a trip East next year. New Jersey my home state and Norfolk, Va. I will drive across country on the northern route, my brother lives in Bridgeton,N.J. And my God father lives in Norfolk, he is a retired Bishop. I will be bring my brother a small four foot lighthouse that I'm building. indoor model. So keep that in mind. Somewhere along the trip I want too meet as many lighthousing folks as I can, much planning is to be done. Then again gas prices is another factor. :D "Boats".Al.

Stephen and Zackary...
This is not an answer to your question, nor an answer you want to hear. I don't know. Perhaps it is because it has been in personal litigation, and there isn't a thing we can do about it as a lighthouse society. But we can promote the welfare of the reproduction and it's educational benefits. Stephen, as a member, you get the OBLHS Lighthouse News. I can't recall it ever being listed in the "Lighthouse Updates." Can you? You might want to contact the Roberts with your question.

Boats...
TERRIFIC!! Let us know when you get closer to the time.

Judy,

I just checked one of my newest lighthouse news mailings and you are right, it is not listed in there.

I do understand that we as a society do not have any direct control over the structure, but as advocates for the lighthouses of NC, it (IMHO) puts us in the position to at least make others aware of the lighthouse and its condition/situation so that if there is ever a chance we can benifit it in some way, we are there, ready to do whatever we can.

As a side note, one of my photos of the lighthouse comes up in the right corner when you visit the main page sometimes. So why not include it in with the others?

I know that you and others may feel the same way and these comments are not directed toward you, I just thought I would have my say.
Stephen

Stephen, are you asking that it be included in the Lighthouse section with directions?

The OBLHS site has a contact/comment section. If you use that, you would most likely get a response. Your suggestion is good if it can be done website wise. Maybe it could be on the same page as the reproduction at Plymouth.

I also hope that overall, you like the site. And as a member, you have the ability to contribute to the site...articles & photos.
