Thanks Leah. Any good comments from Michelle's good freind always makes me happy. I do have more but have been doing a whole lot of stuff and haven't had lots of time to go through and resize all of them. i will however put up a couple OBX (non lighthouse) pics to tide you over. :)

Fabulous, Tim!! Where was the beachfront shot taken?

I haven't been to the Outer Banks since last March and I miss it desperately. Thanks again for the beautiful photos.

Thanks for the pics, Tim. We're heading down the last weekend of June and the first week of July. Can't wait. I haven't thought a lot about it, as we have lots of other stuff going on, but I'll be mapping my itinerary soon.

Fantastic, Tim! Beautiful shots.

It's sad to see Bodie in that kind of shape, and your close-ups really show it. How I wish the powers that be (the politicians) could understand the importance to generations to come of perserving this grand old light. The more time they waste, the sadder she looks.

Nice pic of Michelle. Got any where she's not so covered up? :D
