What a great story. It was interesting to read the part about where the lighthouse keepers sometimes sleep.

It is a neat story! It's interesting to read this and relate to the way it was in older times.

For LH.net folks who log into the Home page , it's also posted there.

Thanks Murray! :D


It's always good to see some honest reporting and possitive news about Currituck!
