Travel Tuesday: Currituck Beach Light
A warm winter day, a walk on the boardwalk towards the beach, and a view of a lighthouse through the sea grass: such was our visit to the northern end of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The lighthouse is 158 feet tall, and it was the last major brick lighthouse built on the Outer Banks. This is the end of the road, the paved road heading north on the Outer Banks. Beyond this point, the road traverses across the sand of the beach. There is a town about 10 miles north of Corolla and the Currituck Beach Light, 10 miles of beach and dunes and wild horses. The town does not have any paved roads but streets of sand form the grids that houses line. On our visit across the beach, we followed a full size garbage truck heading to the town in the dunes to pick up their trash, just like garbage pick-up in any other town. Families flying kites, men fishing in the surf, couples walking with their dogs along the edge of the water, all moved out of the way of the truck as it rumbled past them. Horses grazed among the dunes and pelicans grazed the surface of the waves searching for food.
Warm memories are meant to be treasured and shared, and photographs are one way to to keep those memories alive. To schedule a photo shoot for portraits, maybe on the beach, or for fine art photographs, contact Crouse Photography today.
