    Bodie Light House, Nags Head North Carolina


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jaron915 called it a treat to be able to view the lens of the Bodie Lighthouse in Nags Head, North Carolina.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    The current Bodie Island Lighthouse is the third that has stood in this vicinity of Bodie Island on the Outer Banks in North Carolina and was built in 1872. It stands 156 feet (48 m) tall and is located on the Roanoke Sound side of the first island that is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The lighthouse is just south of Nags Head, a few miles before Oregon Inlet. It was renovated from August 2009 to March 2013, and was made climbable by the public. This Lighthouse still uses the original Frensel Lens from 1872. I hope you enjoy these pics as I enjoyed taken them!
