Monochrome Monday – Bodie Island Lighthouse

Like the Hatteras Lighthouse 53 miles (85 km) to the south along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Bodie Island Lighthouse (pronounced “body”) stands 156 feet (47.5 m) and is also part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and maintained by the National Park Service. Unlike other lighthouses which switched to aviation beacons, the Bodie Island Lighthouse maintains an original first-order Fresnel lens to cast its light.

    1. Thanks Ray. I read an interesting tidbit- folks outside the area thought for years the island was named after the numerous shipwrecks casualties washing up on the local beaches – gruesome rumor. The truth is the island is named after the Bodie family who sold the 15 acre site in the 1870s. 🙂
