cool and clear
We left our anchorage late (relatively) because we did not have far to go. Weather has co-operated with our plans and we have had time to spare- so Keith had picked out the small town of Southport, NC to spend the afternoon and night. We got there and although it looked perfectly suitable, if a bit small, there was an island called Bald Head Island which beckoned us. Only 2 nm from Southport it has homes and condos, restaurants and stores, but no cars or bridges. A ferry or private boat is the only way here and there are thousands of acres of saltmarsh's and tidal creeks. We begged off the Soutport marina and came on over to this island naturalism and history. It has lighthouses from the Revolutionary era and blockade history from the Civil War. We rode our bikes all around and got much needed exercise as well as an intimate experience with the island.
