Geez, it's just a lighthouse
24 October 2009 | Fort Story, VA
Beckie arrived at 8:30 Friday morning after driving all night. Lucky she had her new friend "Lee", her new GPS buddy, to keep her company. After Beckie got settled in we took a drive though Norfolk and then to Virginia Beach. On the way back we saw a sign for the Cape Henry Lighthouse. So we decided to take a look.
As we turned onto the road there was a guarded road block.
"The reason for your visit ?"
"Please open your hood and trunk."
"Please open your center console and glove box ."
"Please step out of the car."
"Please open all car doors."
"All of them please."
"Stand away from the car."
"No, stand over here please!"
"Any guns, drugs?"
"The reason for your visit?"
"We just want to see the light house."
Well, after he check the underside of the car for oil leaks with a large mirror, we were allowed to proceed
It seems the Cape Henry Lighthouse is in the middle of the Fort Story Navy base (was Army, the navy has it now).
191 steps up and you got a pretty good view of the approach to the Chesapeake Bay entrance and the whole Navy base.
Geez and we thought it was just a light house!
