Watercolor… this watercolor painting dates to a 2007 trip along the east coast of the Carolinas… one of the North Carolina Outer Banks lighthouses. This is the 3rd tower on site. The first, built 1847, was abandoned due to an inferior foundation, the second, built 1859 was intentionally burned in 1861, and the current tower, located farther inland, was erected in 1872. I’m told that now… the grove of all of these beautiful old pines… have been cut down and torn out because of a pine borer beetle infestation. Bodie Island Light joined the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
