Great day – woke up at 4.30am to meet up with group leaving for Pocosin Lake at 5.30am. It was 11 degrees outside. Long day – we finally got back to the hotel after sunset, got something to eat and thawed out. Can’t write anymore – gotta be up again at 4.30 for Cape Hatteras Lighthouse trip ….

The images are of Bodie Island Lighthouse at dusk and frozen Lake Mattamuskeet.
