Them's not stairs. That's terror in disguise.

I don't do ladders very well. Nope, guess that gets crossed off as one to visit.

Enjoyed the photos and article though. Only way I'll ever see the view from the top. ;)

I have been inside the base and looked up at those stairs. That was enough for me!

I too have been inside at the base. At that time you could only go up one flight of steps. It looked like the steps went to the top, so I am guessing the ladder is a short one. Need to go back to this one, especially since it is my birth lighthouse (built the year I was born).

Oak Island will always have a special place in my heart no because I went there, but because it's the first lighthouse I ever talked to on the radio. I have the QSL card to prove it!!!!!!
