The Fascinating Reason Behind The Diamond-Shaped Design On The Cape Lookout Lighthouse In North Carolina
North Carolina’s gorgeous coastline features seven standing lighthouses. Can you name them all? What about naming them in their order from north to south? Try: Currituck, Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras, Ocracoke, Cape Lookout, Old Baldy (Bald Head Island), and Oak Island. Most lighthouses were given their own day mark, so that approaching vessels could determine which lighthouse was in view.
