Seems like it has taken a long time to get through North Carolina, but we have enjoyed the journey. We followed designed scenic byways when possible stopping to investigate whatever happened to draw our attention.
More roadside attractions.
A big storm must have pushed this boat was way upriver.
First time I’ve ever seen a “No Wake” sign for road vehicles.
Apparently feeding an alligator unintentionally is OK.
Lake Phelps in Pettigrew State Park
Somerset Place, which operated as a plantation from 1785 until 1865, is located within the State Park.
Cumulatively, Somerset Place was home to more than 800 enslaved men, women, and children of African descent.
The boat canal through the Great Dismal Swamp is closed until further notice due to damage from the flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew.
One of North America’s great wetland forests, the Great Dismal Swamp offered a refuge to runaway slaves, some of whom lived in maroon colonies deep within the swamp.
Our last stop in North Carolina in Moyock at the home of Boondockers Welcome hosts Leigh and John. They travel in a small Class B campervan as well so we had many stories to share. We enjoyed meeting this couple and look forward to hosting them this summer.
