Thank you If you have a pet, the next time you come down check out The Red Dog Inn, in Beaufort. That is where we are staying in September with our Samoyed. A quaint, beautiful B&B that allows "furry" children. Have a wonderful vacation. kelsie

We go down there a couple of times a month and love it. Too bad you won't be here on the 5th of Sept., we will be down with our Samoyed for a few days. Have a wonderful trip.

Oh I miss my Samoyed, I love those dogs. The best dogs ever! Does he or she like the beach?

I have family in that area, I can't wait to check out some of those places you mentioned. Last time I went there I didn't get a chance to eat anywhere but Outback.

Go down I-95 until you get to a place called Selma (in NC). Somewhere around there you can get on 70-East. Do that and you'll end up in downtown Morehead City, from which point it's pretty easy to get to Emerald Isle; just go across the bridge to Atlantic beach and turn right when you get to the Atlantic Beach intersection. You could turn off 70 a while before getting to Morehead and get on 17, then Route 58, but imo the former is better because it allows you to see Morehead/Atlantic Beach on the way down. Plus it's easier

OR you can get on I40E and get off at the Magnolia exit (2 exits past the rest area/Warsaw exit). Take Hwy 24 through Jacksonville and Swansboro. At the big intersection in Cape Carteret, turn Rt (Hwy 58) and over the bridge, you are in EI.
