Photo Series Swansboro NC

A few weeks ago we visited the Emerald Isle in North Carolina and we stopped in this tiny coastal village. It is just over the bridge from Emerald Island and close to a great place to rent kayaks and explore the barrier islands, namely Barrier Island Kayaks. 

It was peaceful and full of history it reminded me of cape cod. This brick building was impressive built with bricks from England in 1838 by the mid 1800s nearly 80% of naval stores (a distilled product from pine sap used for ship building) was supplied from this area, this was an impressive house in those days and today. 

Now the town has some gift shops, restaurants and a lovely little marina with chairs. It is also home to lots of ducks that act like they own the place! 

love the cape cod style siding. 

we thought this little shop was like a Western movie.

The ducks, maybe should have been swans!

If you even along the North Carolina coast I highly recommend a stroll around Swansboro its lovely,

Safe stay and well wonderful people.
