Alongside "Old Baldy"--the longest standing lighthouse in North Carolina--
sits this ever-so-charming chapel. We saw it first as daylight faded.
Actually it's along Bald Head Creek, but ever so close to the ocean as well.
The Gardener and I were so taken by it that we went over the next morning,
and sure enough we could go inside to have a look around.
It is as beautiful inside as it is outside.
Visits from different siblings bookended a week at the beach
with our son's family, so it's been a busy time lately.
Bald Head Island has a different feel to it than most beaches I've experienced.
Having to take the ferry over made us think twice about what we took with us.
It's a quiet place with lots of shade and old trees and no motorized
vehicles--just the hum of golf carts which are so fun to drive.
But--don't forget to plug them in for a recharge!
