Belhaven Waterway Marina!

We couldn't recommend Belhaven Waterway Marina more, they are a great marina and a very helpful staff. When we entered the Marina area they were standing by with line handlers and fenders already on the docks. Chris compared the bathrooms and showers to what you would find in a nice Bed and Breakfast. The location is right in the middle of the town with restaurants, Hospital, hardware store, banks and a drug store within a few blocks of the docks. We had a the lunch buffet at Fishooks Cafe, and it was great. The Grocery store is a way off but the owner's wife offered to give us a ride there if we wanted to go. Chris also found a QVC outlet store within walking distance, although a long walk. It is a nice town but like so many small towns we have seen it is slowly dying off with a lot of closed storefronts, too bad. There is a nice gazebo right along the docks for the boaters to meet in with nice furniture, tables, and screened in. I also added more pictures to the slide show at the top of the blog page.

How did you get the map to show up on your web page. Would like to do that on mine too.

Glad you like the place you're in. We're almost to Elizabeth City.

I find it very disturbing that we had to haul our boat today for the winter, and then come home and see the beautiful pictures you posted.
Glad you are enjoying yourself.
Winter comes too early here.
