Walking the streets of this small town was an experience. It is the oldest town in NC and was also the home of Edward Teach, aka Black Beard. I swear I could feel the history here. The views of the Pamlico River can be seen from every street just about, and with a population of less than 300 there are no cars driving around, no stoplights, no hustle and bustle. All you hear are seagulls and the wind. It is like stepping back in time. I loved it.
