The Albemarle Sound is a very large, fresh-water estuary supplied by 9 rivers: North, Pasquotank, Little, Perquimans, Yeopim, Chowan, Cashie, Roanoke and the Scuppernong Rivers. Each river offers unique opportunities ranging from fishing, sailing and cruising to the study of rare plants and animals. With proper skills and equipment, it would be possible to leave Edenton Harbor and cruise to New York, Miami or England without a single dam or lock to interfere. But, we assume most folks will stay closer to home.
Until you’ve paddled through an ancient millpond, you’ve not seen much. ~ Mary M
