Lighthouses in VA and NC

As part of my trips to the shore I have assembled an incomplete album of lighthouses in Virginia and North Carolina.

The first of the lights houses is on the eastern shore of VA, the Assateague lighthouse (Chincoteague Island, VA, 37.91126,-75.356219). We were there on a cold spring day.
