In these waters they killed Black Beard the pirate. His real name was Edward Teach, hence the name. He would anchor his ship here and when a ship was sighted he would run out to attack them.
2nd day of kayaking at Ocracoke.
Headed out out around 8:15. Kayaked South along the coast.
Many small beaches to stop at along the way.
Explored some creeks. There are oyster beds under the water here.
This is a vast bird sanctuary. Can’t land here. Grrrrrr!
This is the very south South end of the island.
Pulling back into the beach house. That is it to the right of the beached sail boat. Ocracoke lighthouse to the right of that.
