Lookout Lighthouse - continued:
or not you get to climb the lighthouse at Cape Lookout, the
scenery is worth the visit. This view of surf fishermen (right
photo) is testament to that. But being able to climb the tower
and see the views of Shackleford Banks, the "Emerald Coast"
and the dazzling vistas around the cape certainly makes a trip
to Cape Lookout a special event. Having the tower rehabilitated
so that "daily public access" is a reality will definitely serve
to draw more visitors here. Hopefully, these pages will help
make people aware of what needs to be done at Cape Lookout for
that to happen, and why climbing the tower has not been an option
in the past. Let us hope that it will not be too long before
"daily public access" is a reality for Cape Lookout Lighthouse.
we leave Cape Lookout, let's take one last look around with
this final collection of photos. The coal shed is now gone from
in front of the Keeper's Quarters in this photo from the sound
at left. Looking due east at the lighthouse you see the white
diamonds on a black background in the photo at right. Below
left shows the beacon, which is on 24 hours a day. More scenes
around the lighthouse and lighthouse views from around the area
are included below.
very much like to hear your comments, thoughts and suggestions
