Our trip to Virginia began about a week before Thanksgiving. We stopped in St. Marys, Georgia for a night, then Georgetown, South Carolina for three nights. We stayed at Francis Marion National Forest where we camped right on the Intracoastal Waterway. We arrived in Croatan National Forest near New Bern, North Carolina a couple of days before Thanksgiving and decided to stay there until the holidays. As always, we bought a whole turkey (actually two frozen ones, which had time to thaw out) and we grilled one of them on the grill provided with the camp spot. The weather was perfect for building a bonfire and enjoying cooking and dining outdoors.
The Chesapeake Bay was even more beautiful than we expected.
