Geocache Description:

This is a Virtual Geocache and you will not find an ammo can or plastic container here. This site is not accessible during high tide. You must cross a rocky beach to get to it at low tide.

THE LIGHTHOUSE IS CLOSED ON MONDAYS AND TUESDAYS. THE INFORMATIONAL SIGNS ARE POSTED PICTURES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.
This is a Virtual Geocache about which you must answer several questions before you may log it as a find. You will find a plaque and several information signs at ground zero and immediate vicinity. The questions we will require answers to are not found on the websites on line. You must read the plaques and signs at this Geocache.

1)What date did Theophilis Magruder, the first keeper of this lighthouse, begin his duties?

2)What is the name of the last lighthouse keeper at time of automation, specifically include his middle initial?

3)On display to the left of one of the informational signs is a whale bone. What part of the whale is it?

Please send your answers via email to NCFLYERS and go ahead and log your find. Thanks for learning a little more about this and that.
