Cedar Point CG (site #37)
Croatan National Forest
Cedar Point, NC
There is a nice hiking trail right beside the cg here that has been cleared out nicely after last month’s Hurricane Irene. It’s wide enough to enjoy a bike ride to get away from the many mosquitoes.
There are about five bridges to walk over the marshy areas. I’m not real sure if it’s legal to fish from them, but I doubt that he was catching anything.
The trail makes a loop so that you come out at the beginning point and is a little more than a mile long. I didn’t walk the whole thing because the mosquitoes were horrendous. I learned from Sherry that it’s ok to follow the same trail back because you see the same things from a different angle. Here’s an example. This bird feeding station was recently added to the trail. See how different it looks.
This little fella was glad that the squirrel guard was working. He wasn’t much bigger than the mosquitoes that threatened to carry me away.
There is also a shallow boat launch right here that will handle kayaks very nicely. A small jon boat would be ok at high tide.
We are in site #37 which is the last site in the cg. It is becoming one of our favorite sites because you have a private patio area and it is close to a water spigot. I enjoyed relaxing with Smudge after checking out the trail.
On Friday after taking Wanda to freshen up at the dump station, the neighbors across the road asked Gin to help them with their vuqube satellite dish receiver. They had noticed that we had ours on the roof and they were having trouble getting reception on theirs. While chatting with them, it was discovered that they not only live near Clayton but they actually live in our subdivision! They live two cul de sacs from us. They have noticed that Wanda hasn’t been in the driveway as much as usual while walking their dogs. Bill and Judy have had truck campers in the past but got a nice 5er this year and enjoy it a lot. Another small world moment in the rving lifestyle.
We will leave here soon to go to Rocky Mount for a few days. Gin’s mom is having surgery this week so we will help out in whatever way we can.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
