Hadley and Tyson climbed their first lighthouse...108 steps at Old Baldy!
While the girls and I (along with our friends Amanda and Tyson) were on Bald Head Island on August 18, we climbed Old Baldy Lighthouse. Old Baldy was built in 1817 and is NC's oldest standing lighthouse. It is made of brick and plaster.

When I stood inside Old Baldy and looked up, this was my view:
Hadley climbed all 108 steps!
When Hadley climbed the ladder, I was waiting for her at the top of the lighthouse:
The top of Old Baldy was a small, hot, enclosed octagonal space that only had room for 4-6 people at a time...
...but we enjoyed the beautiful views of the marshes on Bald Head Island:
