Bodie Island Lighthouse, USA

ok, one more card for today, and hopefully I'll manage to write this post as well, cos blogger has been playing some tricks on me all night long...grrrrrrrr!!!

Robin sent me this lovely lighthouse for the new edition of the Choose a Country RR. It shows the Bodie Island Lighthouse in North Carolina, and as the back of the card says: During the Civil War, in 1861, Confederate troops slipped into the Bodie Island Lighthouse and blew it up. Rebuilt by 1872, the existing Bodie Island Lighthouse is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The old keeper's house is open as a visitor's centre and museum.

So if you are nearby, go for a visit =)

well-known stamp :)
