Day 28.  Great Dismal Swamp, Virginia section.

Our flotilla of Harmony, Cellar Door and Gracie at the Welcome Centre of the Great Dismal Swamp State Park. This place would be even more beautiful in Fall/Autumn when the leaves change color.

There used to be a pub called the Drummond Lake Hotel that straddled the state border between Virginia and North Carolina. It was favored by fugitives who could move to the other end of the bar so that the sheriff didn’t have jurisdiction to arrest them! It is also where Edgar Alan Poe wrote the Raven.

Going back to the Deep Creek Shopping Centre for pizza tonight. Deep Creek is at the Northern end of the Dismal Swamp Canal just before the lock that brings us back to sea level.
