We have been unable to write for the past couple of days due to no Internet at several places where we anchored overnight. So this story is about River Dunes, a great marina on Broad Creek next to Oriental, NC.

We found River Dunes last Fall on our trip south. Why is it great?.  Well the price is low, this summer $1.50/ft, last Fall it was $1.25; the facilities are 5 star, and it has the only 6 nozzle steam shower that we have found on the East Coast.  I have included a pictures of the main living room and the 6 nozzle shower.

In the afternoon we enjoyed the pool and hot tub and just read our books and tried to stay out of the sun.

That evening a family was having a graduation dinner for their son from high school.  They had fried chicken, beef brisket, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, rolls, lemon squares and chocolate brownie.  The family opened it up to anyone staying at the marina that night. Cost was great, only $15/person.

We said goodbye for River Dunes Monday morning and took off for a 46 mile trip to an anchorage on the Pungo River.
