The Edenton Town Docks overlook the Edenton city waterfront, north of unlighted daybeacon #8. Edenton, one of the Colonial Capitals of North Carolina, lies well off the AICW, on the western reaches of Albemarle Sound, and at the eastern mouth of mighty Chowan River.
You got to come see the Edenton, N.C. Town Dock. Big concrete breakwater with a narrow entrance to the West. Inside the wall is the quietest, calmest harbor we have ever seen. Little kids playing on the swings in the adjacent municipal park. City full of history, museums, and great restaurants. First two nights are free. 50 amp electricity is $6.00/night. Three or four city employees came by to see if there was anything we needed. If we didn’t have other places to go, we’d stay here for awhile.

You didn’t mention that there is no fuel at downdown Edenton, has a pump out, but fuel should be at the old Albemarle Boat works on Queen street, call Scott Harrell first @ 252-337=5515.
I hope you walked the town, nicest small town in the South with great restored houses.
Edenton, NC One of the Ten Prettiest Towns in the South. Walk up the main st away from the harbor and enjoy the history and the shops. There is a great library, coffee shop, several terrific restaurants. Enjoy the courthouse Square, St Paul’s church, Octagon House and blocks of homes from the 18th and 19th centuries. Don’t miss the classy consignment shop on Broad St. and dinner at the Waterman’s Restaurant.
BTW I own an apt in the historic Cotton Mill In the Mill Village a few blocks east of town.
Grocery shopping is a mile inland unfortunately.
