Climbing the Oak Island lighthouse (with Nancy, natch), and after a bit, back down. The GPS track on this is not particularly meaningful, of course, so I estimated the distance and climb. This lighthouse has a series of ship ladders inside, rather than the more common spiral stairs. It's pretty tall as these things go.

We took the ferry out to Bald Head Island, to see Old Baldy Lighthouse (which was unfortunately closed for the season, so we didn't get to climb it), but Nancy also wanted to see the foundations of the former Cape Fear Lighthouse. So we rented a couple of beach cruiser bikes and rode out there (on paved paths). Interesting little island, half occuoied by a golf course and otherwise packed with houses that I assume are outrageously expensive, but that aren't overly ostentatious, and the only motor vehicles are golf carts of varying sizes.
