Bodie Island Light Station...

...Before we left for vacay, I searched OBX on Pinterest and saw these awesome lighthouse pics. From that moment on, I was obsessed with wanting to see a lighthouse. Finally, on Friday morning at the crack of dawn since my baby had me up, my sis, H, AR and I were on a mission to find a lighthouse.
 
At first we were disappointed when we saw the one we were looking for was over an hour away. No way were we up for a 2 hour drive for a 20 minute gander and photoshoot of a lighthouse and we were NOT climbing it since I'd have to carry AR. Then we stopped an a random visitor's center and saw there was one only 10 miles away-woot, woot!
 
It was the Bodie Island Light Station.

As you can tell from this pic, it was EARLY like 6:30am Pacific so 5:30am Central Time.

I love this pic, just wish it had focused on AR instead of the lighthouse. It was one of the first attempts.

Yeah! I got it right!

AR was thrilled with the lighthouse, can you tell?

Wow! I've always thought it would be neat to see a lighthouse up close. It looks so pretty!
