Well, there are five major lighthouses on the Outer Banks:
- Currituck Beach
- Bodie Island
- Cape Hatteras
- Cape Lookout
But there are more! Some readers will know about Old Baldy and Oak Island Lights. In addition, I have written about the Diamond Shoals Light and Hatteras Beacon. According to one article I discovered (https://www.ranker.com/list/lighthouses-in-north-carolina/jennifer-lee) there are (or were) twenty-one different lighthouses in North Carolina. Maybe some of our readers know of another one or two. If so, please leave a comment.
This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is a delightful story written by Dr. Warren Silverman, who in 1981 became the island's resident physician after forty years without a doctor. The story is about Dr. Silverman's very first Ocracoke patient, island native Maltby Bragg (1904-1985).
