We headed south about 30 miles on the island and stopped at the next lighthouse in Cape Hatteras. This is another beautiful area and a great and impressive lighthouse. The lighthouse was actually moved several years ago due to erosion. What a task that was to move something so tall and heavy.
We drove to the end of this island and took the ferry to the next island, Ocracoke where the last lighthouse sits.
The lighthouse keepers home.
We had lunch in Ocracoke. I had the best Shrimp and Grits I've ever had and David had a wonderful dish of Crab Mac n Cheese.
After shopping around the area for a while we headed back 16 miles to the end of Ocracoke Island to catch the ferry back home.
We stopped on the way to visit the wild ponies that live on the island. They used to run wild, and although they are still wild are fed and cared for by the NPS.
