Cape Hatteras LBSTA and Little Kinnakeet LSS

Just got back from a lighthouse trip? Have you just finished photographing every aspect of one lighthouse? Post the pictures here! Lighthouse-related photos are also welcome.

Before we left Hatteras, we drove over to the old site of the Cape Hatteras Lifeboat Station. Although this site was extablished in 1939 back further from the beach where the old Cape Hatteras LSS once stood. The 1882-Type station was torn down after this station was built. These are the remaining buildings left at the station, which is now used by the Parks Service.

From there, we made a detour to the Little Kinnakeet LSS. As was the case last year, the 1874-Type station is still being restored.

Surrounded by a fence, both station buildings are difficult to photograph and the mosquitos were out in full force here as well. Here are two shots of the Souther Pattern-Type station building.

Next on the list was the Pea Island LSS. Since we were there, a three story house was built on the beach side of this station. There were people around and I was not sure if this was a private drive so we stuck to one photo here.

The next stop, Chicamacomico LSS.

Stephen,

The two after the one being restored ... that's part of Little Kinnakeet as well? At first I thought they unburied the one over by Oregon Inlet.

Thanks for posting these

Good mornign Stephen,
Where did you find the Cape Hatteras Lifeboat Station? I think that's the only one we missed last year.

Can't wait to go the Outer Banks again next week!!! It's been a long year.

Barry,

Yes, both buildings are part of the Little Kinnakeet LSS. Just like at Chicamacomico and other stations, another building was built inpart to expand the station. These sit together almost hidden away just north of Avon.

Yvonne,

When you make a left or right off of hwy 12 to visit the Cape Hatteras Light, continue past the left turns to the old location of the lighthouse and the new location of the lighthouse, staying straight on that road. The road winds around toward the beach on the south side of the lighthouse you can find them on the right. The original stations sat along that road close to the beach.

Hope this helps.
Stephen

Thanks for the great shots, Stephen! And thanks for the
directions....everytime I'm down there I always turn-in at
the Hatteras Light and have never continued on past that
turn.
