TravelPod Member ReviewsOcracoke Campground
This is a great national Campsite that is veryu close to a fantastic beach and a an easy 3 mile bike ride on a paved trail to Ocracoke. This town is not like the rest of the Outer Banks in that they dont allow chain stores so it is not Schlocky at all and is actually really interesting to bike

Tomorrow we will be once again on a ferry as we head north to the next Outer Banks (also known as OBX) island of Hatteras.
... at a non-national brand motel -- the Sand Dollar Inn ($69 tax). There's little about this island that's franchised. It's a welcome change.
Day Three Summary: Cape Fear, Camp Lejeune, Rachel Carson and a ferry ride across the Atlantic Ocean (not all of it). Today's distance ridden: about 260 miles.

... accomplished in such a short time and in adverse conditions. One fascinating point, a small cannon is used to fire a shot to the mast of the stricken ship. This cannon shot carries a life line with it which is then used to pull the heavier lines to the ship and eventually it gets the heavy hawsers to the ship and then the buoy can be taken to the ship and people rescued. It is the ONLY GUN ...
