A favorite feature for readers of The Beacon has long been its Where’s the Beacon? submissions. It encourages local folks to take a photo of a recent fun trip or vacation outing with their favorite newspaper — The Beacon, of course — and email the photo to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s been a while since we’ve received one of the interesting missives from our readers. With many regular readers now on winter sojourns or vacations, it’s time to remember to take along a copy of the latest issue of The Beacon and include it in the photo with friends or family.
In this week’s edition of The Beacon, we welcomed this photo from Sandra and Emily Holcomb of Port Clinton, who were on vacation under sunny skies at the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla, N. C.
Open daily for climbing from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. through December 1, visitors can climb the 220 steps to the top for a breathtaking view while learning from docents, brochures, and exhibits about shipwrecks, the lives of lighthouse keepers, and the history and national significance of the tower. The beacon continues to be an active aid to navigation and the focus of a preservation effort by the Outer Banks Conservationists.
