A very good friend of mine has purchased a lot in River Dunes & plans on retiring there. Is anyone intimately familiar with this area? How far does one have to travel from RD to get to open water?
*There are only three or four families living there full time at present.* It has been that way for the last several years, since it's inception.* There are several families that come in for a week or so every other month, but most have someone on their staff provision the house before they show up.
So your friend will be by him self*except for the folks that stay on their boats there.*It's several miles to town but for the most part Oriental is a sleepy little sailing community.* It is said that there are more sailboats there than people.* I believe the numbers are 2,700 to 875 (summer) less in winter.
The entrance to Adams Creek is at MM 185, Oriental is at 182, River Dunes is a couple of miles from the 175 MM up Broad Creek.* From MM185 the Beaufort Inlet is about 22 miles.* David is correct at about 35 total miles.
