Where I stayed
Matt and Sue's
Light rain and wind continued today off and on so when Kate finished school we went to the Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores across the causeway from Morehead City.
Small tanks and a number of larger ones hold representative species from the local rivers, piedmont, sport fishing, coastal waters, and offshore waters, from itty bitty frogs to sharks. No aquarium is complete without touch tanks; rays gracefully swam around one (stingers removed) and another touch tank included spider crabs, and starfish.

Another little waterfront community on the Intercoastal Waterway, Swansboro, not far from Matt and Sue’s dates back to the early 1700’s. We had a delicious lunch at one of the pubs and wandered the streets and waterfront.
