Yesterday started out like all the mornings have for the last four or five days with rain. We decided to go out anyway rain or not.  We wanted to see what Oak Island and the light house looked like.
So we went north on US 17,turned off on route 211.  Soon came to this sign so a right turn we made.
Saw this water tower so and soon where on Oak Island.
The island is bigger than I thought it would be. It has houses up and down the beach,some are old and have been here a long time.  Even though there are a lot of houses it still has a rustic look with much of the sand dunes and growth left in place.  We looked up and down the beach.
The houses are located close to the water. The beach is short between the sand dunes and water.
A nice light house that lookes to be maybe 200 feet high. It is only open a couple of days a week and yesterday was not one of them.
A nice peaceful scene along the beach.  We were glad we went the rain slowed down or stopped enough throughout the day and we were able to enjoy it so much.
Thanks for stopping in and have yourself a good day.
