Cape Lookout Bight is almost due north of Cape Lookout and, as Claiborne points out in the link below, is best accessed via the Beaufort Inlet, rather than through Back Sound, departing the AICW at Statute Mile 205 and running the short distance down the coast.
Agree with everything but launching the apples. The national seashore restricts feeding the horses because they’re digestive systems have been adapted to the shore grass with low nutritional value. Eating apples, carrots, etc. can give them colic. The horses are not regularly checked out so there’s not anyone there to treat this condition. Better to row over to Shackleford and hike in to see them. The shelling on Shackleford is outstanding.
