We continued north staying the night at the Oregon Inlet Campground. There is a large marina, the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, just across the street. For a good bit of the day, we parked over there watching the charter boats come and go. A full days fishing on one of the large boats is $1,600. Maybe next time.
The campground is nice. There is a large dune line separating the campground from the ocean. We've stayed in all of the NPS campgrounds on the OBX. Ocracoke is our favorite.
Tomorrow we drive half the distance to Alex's house in Annandale, VA. Her surgery is tomorrow. We'll get to her house by about noon time on Friday.
