05-21-09 Dowry Creek Marina, Belhaven, NC

We left Morehead City this morning about 0900 and arrived at Dowry Creek about 1430. The Neuse was 2-3 feet waves and the Pamlico a bit better. We traveled about 72 miles. Dowry Creek is one of the best marinas around. Excellent facilities and great staff. We plan to stay here two nights, then on to Coinjock, and on to Atlantic Marine in Great Bridge, VA. We have the AC guy scheduled for Tuesday morning, after the holiday on Monday.


  1. Glad you made it out of Morehead and are in such a nice marina! The church book discussion group met here yesterday and I read them your last two blog entries - everyone was so interested - you are going to have lots of "blogollowers" traveling with you! hugs... m & t

  2. Hi, this is Sherry (Cartercrew) from the GB forum. Sounds like you've had a typical GB adventure so far. :)

    If you need any help around the Yorktown area, call Dare Marina and ask for Scott or Mike. We bought our boat there and they are super people to deal with. 757-898-3000.

    Take Care

  3. Rick and Betsy...thanks so much for your update is fascinating to "follow along with you" each step of the way. As I read about your adventure each day, I can vicariously travel with you and therefore won't ever have to do the loop myself. Travel safely...have fun and know you are missed. Tim Croft
