Today’s adventure really was an adventure that I really had not anticipated. Following a GPS was not the way to find the Cape Henry Lighthouse as that led us to the wrong military gate! Yes I did say military gate, and we were surprised as well.
I guess I should have read my directions better on the Cape Henry Lighthouse website, as it provides a GPS physical address of 583 Atlantic Avenue, Fort Story, VA. 23459, because we ended up at the first gate which was wrong. Also, if I would have read, I would have been prepared for what was about to happen.
Lavishly live this travel adventure to my pursuit of seeing all the lighthouses I can as I travel the USA, and check out the Cape Henry Lighthouse.
READ AND LEARN BEFORE YOU GO
You all know me as super astute and I don’t travel to places unless I read and learn. This trip came up so fast, I barely had time to plan and this is a case where the element of surprise kind of took away my excitement and then it came back once we got through the gates!
Remember, I always prepare for traveling ahead of time, and I did, but I did not read far enough into the website, because I just figured we could just cruise on up to a lighthouse, like they do in the movies….dahhhh on me and thanks Cameron Diaz for making it look like you can just run off to a lighthouse!
If you were headed out to the Cape Henry lighthouse you definitely need to take your car insurance, your driver’s registration, as well as your drivers license so you don’t miss the opportunity to revel in something awe-inspiring. Get ready to go on quite the adventure as you visit the Cape Henry lighthouse (the old and the new). A fabulous lighthouse site awaits you.
WILD TALES OF TRAVEL
I know it seems like we always have some wild tales to tell, but lavishly living life out loud does bring on the extreme travel stories. It would seem that we are just magnets for fun, chaos and of course fun mishaps, so today’s adventure that caught me off guard, probably has you thinking…”this is your norm!”
In actuality, there is an exact address, I just did not capture it when I was looking at the Cape Henry Visitors Website. The address you want to put into your GPS is 583 Atlantic Avenue, Fort Story, VA. 23459. What I was not aware of as well is that Cape Henry Lighthouse is located on a military base in Virginia Beach.
