Sunset Beach, North Carolina

| 0 comments

In mid-October 2021 Beverly and I took a trip to North Carolina. The primary reason was to spend three days with her daughters and granddaughter in Sunset Beach, NC. On our way to Sunset Beach we visited the Sylvan Heights Bird Park in Scotland Neck, NC. After we left Sunset Beach, we enjoyed the rural North Carolina scenery as we drove to the Outer Banks where we stayed for several days to see the area and the lighthouses. I had never been there before and Beverly hadn’t visited the area for a long time. On our way home we made a final stop to see a state park near Farmville, VA.

Sunset Beach is the southern-most community along the North Carolina shore. About ⅓ of the town is located on a barrier island separated from the mainland by marshes and the Intracoastal Waterway. There is a 900 foot long fishing pier on the beach opposite the access road to the island.

We stayed at a rented house at 413 Dolphin Street, which is in an area back from the beach but where all the houses have a waterway at the rear of the house – these waterways eventually connect to the Intracoastal Waterway. There is a link to a Google Satellite view of the house area in the Additional Information section below.

The places we visited that I photographed during this trip are listed below. As we post photos of the various places we will link the place below to the related post.
