Day 7 -
Ocracoke Island, NC
Stats - 370 KM & 8 Hrs. in car. 5 hours driving, 3 hours on two different ferries.
Well, thank God for warm blankets, when I got up this morning the room was 51 F, but the good news was we needed to be at he ferry dock at 7am, so we didn't sit around long. The 2 ferries today both had sitting areas AND the wind had slackened so the rides were quite enjoyable. Still chilly though, 4 C in the morning and warmed up to 12 by the time we got to Myrtle
Dinner at Duffy Street Seafood Shack was very good. I had 'Shrimp & Grits' w/collard greens - Just call me Bubba! Donna opted for the 'just as southern' chowder soup and corn bread. Neat bar.restaurant with good rhythm & blues playing (if you don't believe me just ask Norris!).
High Tide is a great little motel with cheap rates, clean and across from the beach. In the morning we're going to stick around a couple hours to see the beach and have breakfast (Norris' Golden Griddle). Then it's off to Savannah Georgia.
