The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
Interactive toys for the beach and the beach house can be found at this sherbet green and pink building located at Whalebone Junction. Most of the toys, games, books and crafts sold here are classics that have stood the test of time, maybe with updated materials and a modern twist. For instance, hula hoops are iridescent. Popular brands are in stock, including Melissa and Doug, Playmobil, Usborne & Kane, Miller Books and Manhattan Toy. You can find Frisbees and throwing rings, geyser football, Pirate Poppers and The Spooner Fun Board, not to mention stuffed toys (how about a big dolphin or dragon?), pirate dolls, horse models, jump ropes, fish-y toys, sand toys, a “chef’s center” kitchen, and good ol’ fashioned skipper ball.
