Have you visited the beach at the Bertie County’s Tall Glass of Water Project? It started gaining steam back in 2019. I’ve linked to the Bertie County page above. It tells all about the project and I encourage you to go and read about it for yourself. I got so interested in it, I took a quick trip out to take a look for myself. In my opinion, it looks like it could be a great start to a good thing.
However, I must mention a few things that you might need to be aware of.
Things that made me go…Hmmm
- The GPS is slightly off if you are using it to travel to the location. And signage could be better. I drove smooth past the entrance when I saw a little graveled road and the GPS said I had farther to go to get there.
- The gravel road. Big rocks. One and a quarter lane. Which means you have to share the road going in and coming out. It wasn’t a difficult maneuver, but was still a little awkward.
- Parking. There is a big grassy field where you park… much like some makeshift concert secondary parking; but it was doable.
- The actual beach fronts. Country is what country does. 😎 This actually reminded me more of a cove situation. In some places you had more space to put beach chairs and what not, but in all situations, the shore was narrow. There were rusted engine blocks and tires—which made for good exploration and adventure, but Nags Head twin… it was not. 🙂☺
But, I can say that there were a good number of people out there having a great time, and more were coming in as I was leaving. I think this will be a well-used beach/water access. Congratulations to the project planners! And I look forward to many more great things. I took pictures!
