Friday’s Hunt v3.12

Friday’s Hunt 

This week at Eden Hills we’re hunting for Starts with L, Week’s Favorite, and antique. If you haven’t been over to see the spring goat kids, you’d better get a move on! Just click the link at the end of the post.

Week’s Favorite: Saw this today at Norfolk Botanical Garden

Starts with L: Lunch (Some of you may have seen this on Facebook.) Bahama Breeze restaurant, Quesadilla and House Salad with Island Vinaigrette. Mmmm!

Antique: I could make this easy and post a selfie…
…but, instead, this is some of the antique furniture found in the 1886 Roanoke River Lighthouse which has been restored and now resides in Edenton, NC.

Roanoke River Lighthouse

In November of 2010, we visited historic Edenton, North Carolina.  At that time, we found the Roanoke River Lighthouse sitting in the park on Edenton Bay.

We visited again, June 2013, and found it moved to its new home, out in the water.

It was constructed in 1886, and served as a beacon nine miles out in the Albemarle Sound at the entrance to the Roanoke River.

It remained in service until 1941, and was moved to Edenton in 1955.

The exterior work is complete; when the interior is done, hopefully later this year, it will be open to the public.
