Wilmington, NC

We stayed

Our sunniest day thus far on our journey was April 20 as we headed up the Cape Fear River to the historic town of Wilmington, NC.  The Cape Fear River is a major shipping channel - very wide and a bit confusing in parts where different channels cross the waterway. 
We stayed at the City Docks in Wilmington which were right in the center of the historic district.  Cobblestone streets, beautiful old architecture and neighborhoods were within walking and biking distance. 

We rode our bikes for a 12 mile round trip to have our boat cards made.  Discovered a beautiful bicycle route that traversed the city. What a great way to get a good feel for an area while covering a lot of ground!

  1. Cape Fear of Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum fame and the remake starring Robert DeNiro and Nick Nolte? Great movie(s)!
