Cape Hatteras National Seashore: Bodie Island Lighthouse
After arriving on the barrier island that is the Outer Banks in a pouring rain Noelle, Sierra, Parker and I found a sandwich shop for lunch. We then headed into Cape Hatteras National Seashore for the first time. We stopped at Bodie Island to check out the lighthouse there.
We didn't go inside for several reasons. Sierra is too young, we had Parker, and the lighthouse was closed due to lightning. We did however, enjoy seeing the lighthouse and walked a short boardwalk
to a marshy area overlooking the sound where we saw some egrets and other birds flying and wading in the shallow water.
