Cape Lookout National Seashore, North Carolina (June, 2012)

Midweek we decided it was time to get out a little and explore the area.  We thought a slight change of scenery, a lighthouse, and a National Park would be the ticket!  So we headed about 2 hours northeast (around Camp Lejeune, a Marine Base) to Cape Lookout National Seashore.

We stopped in at the Visitors Center and checked out the few displays, got our passport stamps and headed back a mile or two to Calico Jack's, one of a number of ferry services which would take you over to Cape Lookout and the lighthouse (which is visible in the background of the photo).  The ferry ride over and back cost $40.
