The Atlantic

Yesterday we arrived at Flanners Beach Campground in Croatan National Forest on the Neuse River in North Carolina.  It’s not far from the Atlantic Ocean.

With Bernie’s senior pass we are able to stay here, with electric hookup, for only $6 per night.  We paid for two nights.  There are not very many people here and we almost have the place to ourselves.

This morning we hiked a trail in the forest.  The weather was cool, light jackets required. No bugs.  It was a nice walk.

Then we drove to see the ocean, about 20 miles from our campground.  There was limited access to the beach.  We stopped at one place and walked the boardwalk which took us through some brush and over the sand dunes to the beach.

The tourists have gone home.  The beach was nearly empty of people.  We walked along the ocean for a little while.  It was getting windy and then started to rain, so we went home for the rest of the day.
