Pamlico Paddle: Day 5, Pungo River to Swan Quarter

Environmental, Sound Rivers, Water Trail

Posted on October 21st, 2021

Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell and Environmental Projects Coordinator Clay Barber are in the final stretch of the Pamlico Paddle, a nearly 20-mile journey from the Pungo River to Swan Quarter. They’re in open water and in the wild; there’s not a whole lot out there but wind, waves, marsh and a few sandy beaches.
The early part of the day, they had good conditions, but as the afternoon wore on, the wind and waves picked up. First Mate Miller held on as they soldiered through, however, and these adventurers are now back on land again!
