1 EVENT POSTPONED: Ride to Southport, Saturday 4/25, 10am departure from Little River

THIS EVENT WILL BE RESCHEDULED WHEN NC LIFTS ITS STAY-AT-HOME ORDER

Weather permitting, how about a drive to Southport NC in our British best, on Saturday, April 25? Let’s meet at the SC Welcome Center in Little River on Highway 17, with a 10 am departure.

If you’ve never¬† been to Southport ~ it’s a delightful village with a maritime museum at the Ft. Johnson / Southport Visitors Center, lots of nice restaurants on the waterfront, bars and pubs, quaint shops, marinas, the Silver Coast Winery tasting room, a brand new brewery, and scenic views of the Cape Fear Rivers and the Intracoastal Waterway. Southport is also home to the ferries going to Bald Island and Ft. Fisher.

It’s an easy drive from Little River. We’ll drive HWY 17, to NC 211 to Southport. Diane and I will be in our green ’74 MGB. Reply to this post if you plan to participate so I have an idea on how many people will go, and can look at lunch options.
