Our first NC ferry
Last night it rained long and hard. It rained on and off all night. In case you don't know this, rainfall on an rv's roof is pretty loud, so it kept waking us up … all night.
When we were finally fully awake and up, we drove straight to the ferry. We paid $10 and went about 20 minutes from Southport NC to Pleasure Island NC. It rained the whole time.
We drove up on 421 through Kure Beach and Carolina Beach. It was still raining on and off all day.
Driving through Kure Beach we saw a long pier and decided to check it out. We found parking for Bella and went to explore. There were pelicans walking among the people on the pier and they looked hungry.
A fisherman caught a small fish and he was kind enough to give it to Bernie so that she could feed it to the pelicans. The biggest pelican ran as soon as he saw the fish in Bernie’s hands so she had to throw it quickly before the pelican attacked! He gulped it down in one swallow and walked away.
After we left there, we kept going north on 421 until we found the next Walmart and parked for the night. And yes, it is raining again.
