We stopped for lunch, by chance, at the Big Trout Marina Café. Great fried seafood - cooked to order by Hotdog. I had a shrimp burger!
Located on the Pamlico Sound, boats were arriving with their catch. Soft shell crabs I think.
You could sit at the picnic tables outside and enjoy the view. Love the way the birds perch on the pilings. Hard to see them but they are dotted around here and there. It was pretty breezy and cool - so we ate inside with all the locals. Fun.
