On This Day in 2007 – Our Outer Banks Vacation (Day 7)

The date is May 17, 2007.   Five days previous we attended a wedding at Currituck Heritage Park in Corolla.  Bob and I returned to Currituck Heritage Park and visited the Curritcuck Beach Lighthouse.  We paid the $7.00 each admission fee and climbed the 220 steps to the top of the lighthouse, where we enjoyed a panoramic view of Currituck Sound and Currituck Heritage Park.

After our morning’s excursion to Corolla I spent the day packing, updating my journal, reading, watching TV, eating, chatting, and napping.

We left Corolla at 7:15 the next morning and arrived in Winchester, VA at approximately 3:30 pm, where we spent the night.  On May 19th we departed Winchester, VA at 7:50 am and arrived home at approximately 1:30 pm.

What a wonderful week’s vacation we had in the Outer Banks!  I treasure the fact that I am able to have the memory of such a perfect vacation.  Stephanie and Jeff’s wedding was so beautiful, and we enjoyed spending time relaxing with our friends and members of their family in such beautiful surroundings.

    So glad you had such a great vacation. I have enjoyed all your photos from there. These ar great also. I remember the lighthouse but never went inside. Always love to see what they look like. I can’t remember the last time I walked up to the top of one or where it was even. Enjoy your day Linda and thanks for visiting me.
