Seen a few random pictures in various threads. Since it is specific enough, I did not think it needs to be grouped with the 'Roadside Attractions' thead.

The differences between the lighthouses and the obvious differences in the vans could provide an interesting thread? I really enjoy the lighthouses I visit, maybe due to family's sailing and fishing industry histories, maybe not.

Anyway, today was at the Oak Island lighthouse in North Carolina.
