Pamlico Paddle: Day 3, Blounts Creek to Bath Creek

Environmental, Sound Rivers, Water Trail

Posted on October 19th, 2021

Another chilly night on the Tar-Pamlico Water Trail led to a beautiful morning on Blounts Creek. Today, Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell and Sound Rivers’ Environmental Projects Coordinator Clay Barber made their way from the south side of the Pamlico to the north side, 13 miles to Bath Creek. After an ideal day of kayaking on the Pamlico, they arrived at Plum Point, a sandy beach just inside Bath Creek, once the stomping ground of one of Bath’s claims to fame, Blackbeard the Pirate.

The AM update is a recap of the Day 2 trip across the Pamlico from Broad Creek to Blounts Creek, as well as the festivities found at longtime Sound Rivers’ supporters Bob and Phyllis Daw’s home. The PM update reviews the Day 3 paddle, the ongoing fish kill on the Pamlico and First Mate Miller’s preference for swamp and sand over kayaking!
