Some NC paddling challenges on this trip were the wind (it's always windy here, man do I need a sailboat!), the lack of localized current information, and the combination of shallow water & sharp oyster beds on our inflatable kayak (although our Innova is pretty tough and had no problem on this trip). It will be interesting how these challenges mingle with our future aquatic travels.
Make sure to check out Hammocks Beach State Park on their website and/or call 1-877-7CAMPNC to make reservations for one of those Bear Island campsites!
