Larry, the island is really special, as well as the lighthouse. I had wanted to go for years, and finally made it in 2004. Enjoy!!!!

If you visit and want to see the foundation of the Cape Fear Lighthouse, I suggest the golf cart (I believe it is 3 miles from the lighthouse). There is a fee for the golf cart.

We did the day trip out to Bald Head about four years ago. This time we're going for a week. Our condo comes with two four person golf carts and four bicycles. I'm going to be doing some exploring!
