Cape Hatteras Lighthouse . Hatteras Island . North Carolina. Watercolor . 14" x 20"

... Cape Hatteras Lighthouse at its newer site in 2007. The lighthouse and all attendant structures were moved 2,900 feet inland,
to avoid threatening shoreline erosion in 1999. Hatteras, as well as most of the Outer Banks Islands are really just large piles of sand,
which constantly shift. Hatteras Island moves approximately thirteen feet to the west each year.
