This is a picture of the Corolla lighthouse. When Mr. P and I first saw we said, "are those people up there?" Well, yes they are!! At first we thought we didn't want to try it, but after a little "cajoling" by one of us (I won't say who;o) we decided to take the trek up. There are 214 steps and it is 162 feet tall. There are nine sets of winding stairs with a little landing that you can stand on in between, if you need to rest, As we were going up we met people coming down and they were really "huffing" and "puffing." They all said the same thing though, it's worth the climb. So, after much huffing and puffing and puffing and huffing we were finally triumphant and made it to the top!!
Here is a picture of part of the stairs ~ if you have vertigo or are claustrophobic this wouldn't be for you!!
Here were are at the top, sweaty and tired, but extremely happy we did it because we got to see this . . . .
Isn't it beautiful? If you want to learn more about this historic lighthouse you can read about it here.
I don't know if you can really see this, but if you look at the couch you might be able to see the flip flops that were all over it! Cute, cute!
