Last Trip Of The Season – Oriental, NC

As the sun breaks over the field, we prepare for our last camping trip of the season.

A short one hour away we park our RV in a quaint no-frills campground at Oriental, NC. This is not a place for everyone. There are no fancy shops, not a lot of buzz, not even really a town. While there are a lot of things its not there are still pluses to this little community.

There are a few good restaurants like the “Our State” favorite The Silos. The one we liked the best was The Brantley which had a great buffett at an actual decent price. Both were within walking distance of our campsite.

I remember this community as a child as just a small community across a small bridge. There was little scenic about it and certainly no restaurants or little else. Oriental now has grown into still a small but attractive place on the map. What it lacks in frills it offers in warmth. The people were welcoming and sometimes entertaining. Here are a few pics from my journey to Oriental.

It was a cloudy day.
The cloudy day did not stop this kayaker.
While there were a lot of sailboats docked, this was one of the few that ventured out.
Even Roco man liked his stroll along the beachfront.

Oriental is the sailboat capital of the east.

As a former owner of horses I could not help but capture these beauties.

Thank you for taking this journey with me to Oriental, NC. I hope in some small way I have captured its beauty and warmth. On a quiet day when you have nothing else to do take a chance and find that one spot on the map that calls to you.

Have a great day and God bless each and every one of you.

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
