We decided that we should leave our mini-paradise on the beach and check out the Quaco Head Lighthouse. The short drive makes the lighthouse a great change of scenery when in St. Martins and it too is a mini paradise. The high rugged cliffs and rocky island outcrop just off shore leave no doubt of the need for the majestic lighthouse. The old foundations and remnants of old fields hint at the location's history. It would have been a great site to see when it was in its prime, but even now it is a scene that has that special feeling, a spiritual aura. It was a windy afternoon at the lighthouse so we didn't stay long but the whole day will long stay in our memories. If you get a chance you should take the trip to St. Martins and make some memories of your own.
