Keep the ideas coming. The kids love the waves and sand at the beach so we're planning 2 nights there (Rudee Inlet). The rest is anything goes, just thought I needed to reserve slips before summer gets in full swing. I've seen the cove from 64 on the way to Nags Head and thought that place looked pretty cool. Would love to run over to Eastern Shore but have never been there either.

We are coming by water...tow! are you kidding me!!

Oh, and Rick.
Not sure I'm interested in anchoring off-shore in the swells...the kids get enough of anchoring up in the James.

Maybe a night at the BBQ would be cool too...if you can stand 3 young boys that will be with us!

Our back yard is full of things to do, I recommend your initial plan, Rudee's for two nights, close to the beach, lots of good food and more.

The Narrows is a great place to hang out. Most do beach their boats, but you don't have to. You can anchor up around the corner if you want. It's deep around there now since they dredged. And they widened the beach with the spoils.

Russ, definitley do Rudees for a couple nights though. You will need to reserve early because transient slips are limited there.

But, like others have said, your options are endless.

I will add, you need to at least make a trip into Broad Bay through the Narrows and into Linkhorn Bay just to see the houses. I would say it is hands down some of the most beautiful real estate in this area.

I will be happy to show you around back there since I'm at Marina Shores.

Also a trip over to the Tiki Bar on the Eastern Shore is a must as well.

Thanks for the info. I was in the Narrows once.....1995 with 22 people on a 34 cruiser. We had 11 boats that came down from Richmond that year and rode up through the narrows to some restaurant waaayy up in there.
Eastern Shore would be high on the list.....never been!!!

Russ, you and the family are more than welcome to clean up at my house. I live a couple blocks from rudee inlet and the ocean.

Probably a stupid question, are you trailering it down?

Thanks for the offer......I am planning on spending Wed and Thur night in Rudee Inlet somewhere, then moving to somewhere different for Friday, then moving again for Sat night. (not sure where yet.)

Stupid question??? Yeah, why trailer when you can RIDE!!!!!

BTW: You ARE doing the RPBA run this summer aren't you??? Get your registration in or do you need to be my boat bit(h instead?
