I have had some amazing adventures. School is ending soon so my journey has come to its end. Happy summer vacation to everyone.
Today is my last post. I have had lots of fun adventures and visited many places. Have an exciting, relaxing summer vacation!
Today 2-9-14 Flat Quinn visited the Bodie Island Lighthouse.
The lighthouse was built in 1872.
The light keeper and his family lived in the house in front of the lighthouse. His job was to maintain the lighthouse and most importantly to light the lamp at the top foo the lighthouse every night. There was no electricity when the lighthouse was built. An oil lamp was used for light. It has to be lit every night and extinguished every morning. The light keeper made an annual salary of $400.00
The lighthouse stands 156 feet tall
There are 214 steps to the top
The lighthouse can be seen for 19 miles
Today Flat Quinn went to the place where the Wright Brothers, Wilber and Orville flew an airplane for the first time in history.
On December 17 1903 the WrightBrothers had the first powered flight in history. The flight lasted 12 seconds. This monument stands at the top of the hill near where this first flight took place. It is located in the town of Kill Devil Hills, NC.
