From the dates, having a business building lighthouses in the 1870s would have been a very good idea. Do you think they were all built by the same man/company?

Great shots. A deep blue sky sure makes these kinds of pictures come alive.

Apparently, you have a large cache of vacation pictures, and are just parceling them out every few days. Good to keep the board alive with fresh material. Thank you.

Thanks Roger, don't know about who built them but one interesting thing is that they actual moved the Hatteras lighthouse a few years ago back away from the beach.

Link to how they did it: http://www.nps.gov/caha/historycultu...lighthouse.htm

I took a few shots.

All the lighthouses were over 100 years old. Great lighthouse series, love it.

Nice lighthouse photos .

FYI, in an engineering feat, the Cape Hatteras lighthouse was actually moved a couple of hundred yards back a few years ago.

Same thing was done with the SE Point Lighthouse on Block Island, RI.

Very cool.

Nice shoots! Lighthouses are good for us seafarers.

In #2, someone is a wee bit afraid of heights I guess
