My wife was content to wait in the motor home, but I got out and walked around. I watched a Coast Guard ship pull in.

I checked out the beach. Notice the warning on the left about rip currents.

When the ferry arrived we squeezed our motor home on board. Notice I folded the side mirrors in. It was a tight fit.

Since it was going to be such a short trip we got out of our motor home and sat out on deck. We watched the scenery go by en route to Ocracoke Island. Such as a beach full of seagulls.
