Ed and I visited Bath, England in June, and two months later we’re in Bath, North Carolina. We rented a house on the Pamlico river for the week. We drove down from Maryland, in a drive that took 2 hours longer than expected. We’d heard horror stories about the traffic on I-95, and they were all true. We were rewarded with a lovely, peacefully home on the river for the next 7 days.
It has a lovely screened porch with a view of the river. It also has a (very slow) internet connection and no cable TV. It’s almost like roughing it!
My brother David paddled over from their house on his paddleboard. He makes it look easy. I’d like to try that!
Rachael and Kate walked over, and went to the end of our pier where you can see their house right behind them.
We then enjoyed a fruit, cheese and crackers dinner on their pier. There had been nothing but rain in the forecast, but we were lucky and were able to sit outside and watch a family of dolphins swim by.
The sunset was particularly beautiful. We’re looking forward to tomorrow when our girls show up along with John and Nolan. It will be fun to see them!
