TrawlersS1.jpg (82666 bytes)  no lines...
      no waiting...
           no highways, beltways or loops - just two lanes that end at the water...

.....ecstatic tranquility.....

gentle breezes, a wide river, eight creeks and the Pamlico Sound ... 
gateway to the Atlantic Ocean ...  


 900 permanent residents, roughly 2,700 sailboats, 
 sport fishing boats and commercial trawlers...

all nestled on the fingers of land between eight creeks near 
the junction of the Neuse River and the Pamlico Sound ...

Anchorage2.jpg (70867 bytes)  home to both aspiring and world renowned visual artists,
 home to galleries and shops noted for the treasures they offer for sale...
 not just trendy souvenirs.

home for photographers who find in coastal landscapes ... 
what Ansel Adams found in the High Sierra.  


 home to marinas, repair yards and supply sources ...
 for the weekend fisherman, paddler, day sailor or global navigator.

home to those who find companionship 
with abundant waterfowl and wildlife.  

 home to countless regattas and fishing tournaments throughout the year ...
 and just as many paddle trails that are here every day of the year

home to the Croaker Festival ... 
exciting small town originality in a Fourth of July Festival.  

 home to The Spirit of Christmas ...
 all the warmth of a small town American celebration.

home to the Dragon Walk, when, on every New Year's Eve ... 
the mysterious and hilariously scary dragon parades with 
pomp, circumstance and frivolity.  


 home to a lifestyle respectfully shared by artisans, poets and philosophers,
 new residents from points all across the globe ...
 with local residents from Oriental of yesteryear.

a blend of the best from past lifestyles married to only the quality ... 
not the quantity ... of the 21st century.

where one learns that there is nothing my friend, half as 
worth doing as simply messing around in boats, canoes or kayaks ... 
simply messing.  

 where the restaurants offer a smorgasbord of cuisine from the sea
 and the continent...

where accommodations for lodging fit every family's lifestyle ... 
two elegant B&B's, two motels ...  


where a sunrise or sunset ... mirrored in creek or river ... 
a river five miles wide ...
never becomes commonplace, mundane or the same.

where joggers, cyclists, longboarders and walkers ...  
are safe ... any hour ... any time.
