Currituck Lighthouse, Outer Banks

the Currituck Lighthouse near Heritage Park was a great place to explore with the kids….the grounds were beautiful…and even a wild rooster to see.

the base of the lighthouse had this great tree covered path that led to the keeper’s house.

Hi Jess, it's been awhile, I was away too ... but wow do I love seeing all the pictures you took on your trip - so pretty!! I am also a total wedding nut (lurker is more like it, I'm cuckoo for weddings!), I STILL love to look at other people's photos and gather ideas ... this one looks so beautiful, lucky you to be there!!

If you're as nutty as me for weddings, you should check my friend erin's blog ... gorgeous!
