Fort Macon

This was one of my favorite stops on our trip. We arrived early so it was only us on the grounds for a while. We didn't really plan that but it was nice none the less. It is located in Atlantic Beach, NC and is the second most visited state park in North Carolina. There is no admissions charge which is great. Unfortunately for us you couldn't bring dogs inside the park, probably because they don't want them pooping on the grounds so we had to leave Knox in the car. But after we explored the grounds, we took Knox just over the bluff and explored the beach
The fort was constructed after the War of 1812 and was used in the Civil War by the confederacy until 1862 when the Battle of Fort Macon took place and fell back into the Unions hands. In 1936 it was refurbished and established as a state park, the first state park in North Carolina. But when WWII broke out the USA occupied the fort from 1941 until 1944. In 1946 the army returned the park to North Carolina and since then has been a state park. 

In currently life, the weather is fricken awesome here today. First day of spring whoop whoop. I have had the same to do list for about 3 days and have yet to get very much accomplished. Today will be the day. (hopefully) I only have one more post from our trip so after this week, you will start getting true in time post like usual. Happy Thursday.
love, Carlee
