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

We decide to move down the Banks and take the FREE ferry to Ocracoke Island and the national campsite there.

I guess the fire wasn't that bad.
Anyway, we packed up...double ...
... I highly recommend Ocracoke. Life here truly runs on "Island Time". You can rent scoters or golf carts, go to the beach or do a myriad of water activities. Vickie and I will take another walk around town today, maybe go down to the beach. After a nice lunch at a newly opened Mexican restaurant we headed back to the cottage to just chill and wait for the arrival of the new phone. Total of about 18 miles ridden today. We were able to get some good pictures of the ...
Our morning begins with continental breakfast at the Econo Lodge in Conway, South Carolina. Were going to be fast at the breakfast table, so we can get an early start today; we have reservations on the 4 pm ferry to Ocracoke Island. If we miss the ferry, we could find ourselves stuck on the mainland. That would totally mess up our ride plan. We want to allow plenty of extra time. What could possibly go wrong?
So we depart Conway at precisely 8 am, ...
