Bath, North Carolina

 Our first getaway, the virgin voyage, for our Winnebago was to Washington NC, and to neighboring Bath.

Bath is very charming and has a good list of historic elements. Established 1705, as North Carolina's first incorporated town. It was the first port in North Carolina, situated calmly up the Pamlico Sound. It was the hideout for Blackbeard, the pirate, killed in 1718.

The oldest standing church building in North Carolina is here. Built in 1734. Pictured here. 

What is very enjoyable is all this and more are not commercialized in the slightest. There is not even a single restaurant within the "town", which is a few B&B's and a couple of antique stores.

It is a residential community with much waterfront living. A pristine and pretty place.
