Today’s “Throwback Thursday” is a visit to the Pendergast Lighthouse, which has been at the inlet of the Leland River since the beginning of last century judging from this photo by Erhardt Peters. I remember it actually working one summer. It is still there waiting for someone to turn it on again. The land is for sale, maybe the next owner can make it happen.
You might recognize yourself in the photo above. I see an Evans and a Keeble. My two sisters are there. If you see yourself or know someone here, point her out in the comments. The cartoon below is how we all thought of the Blue Bird when we were kids!
