    We enjoy side trips off the ICW instead of just rushing north and south. One recent side trip we took was to Washington, NC. The free town docks are in a well protected basin and across the street from the historic district.

    Rick,
    Thanks so much for posting this! Our trip to NYC and back to Beaufort has been great fun, and we’re looking forward to this next week in Little Washington. Hope some of your readers will drop by Sea Venture to say hey.
    I did want to let you know that if folk read Becalmed thinking it’s a traditional romance, they’ll be disappointed. The story is much more women’s fiction, as a single woman sailor tries to figure out what she really wants.
    Blessings,
    Normandie

    It isn’t often that you hear of an author doing a book tour aboard a 50 foot sailboat, but that is just what Normandie Fischer is doing. She is a Beaufort area author, sculptor, and live aboard sailor who has been traveling the ICW to promote her novels, She will be doing a book signing at the Washington City Docks on November 4th.
    Cruisers are invited to visit Washington and attend the event. Little Washington is a picturesque and hospitible town, on the Pamlico River a few miles west of the ICW. The Washington City Docks offer transient slips up to 80 feet loon, with depths up to 20 feet, including 400 ft of dockage that is free for the firts 48 hours.
    While in Washington Normandie Fischer will be talking to High School Students and Book Clubs in addition to her Yacht Party Book Signing on Dock B on November 4 from 4-6pm.
    Romance novels aren’t really my milieu, but I’m told that Becalmed is a pretty good read.

    Greetings, we loved going to “little” Washington, NC, free docks with restaurants and everything within walking distance, folks friendly and old town village atmosphere, although a Walmart, marine stores, etc only a few miles from the docks. There is a great consignment store on Main Street as well as many galleries, etc. We simply fell in love with this town.
    Cheers, Colleen, Stan and Maybea2

    Washington has very nice docks with or without electric. One needs only to radio Washington City dockmaster on channel 16 to gain accommodation. There is also a mooring field directly across from the city docks and the city has a dingy dock. Sanitary facilities are located in a trailer at the west end of the docks pending a new building in the next year or so.
    There are numerous restaurants on the Main St., about a block away, which cater to most any taste and budget. All locals have their favorites so it would be best to inquire of the dockmaster relative to the various venues and their offerings.
    Groceries, Wal-Mart, and the ABC store are more than a mile plus away so transportation is necessary for supplies. West Marine is in town and is within walking distance. Directly next to West Marine is Washington Crab & Oyster Co. which claims to have the largest selection of seafood in Eastern NC.
    Unfortunately, no fuel is available in Washington but there is a pump out facility at the docks.
    Washington has numerous small boutiques, stores and galleries on Main St. but aside from Main St. there isn’t a lot to see or do. It’s basically pretty quiet.
    When venturing to Washington be sure to follow the channel which is well marked being aware of Grandpap Island which is just east of the railroad trestle and is semi-submerged with but a few dead trees showing. Be careful going through the railroad trestle which is quite narrow and can be difficult depending on wind and wave. West of the trestle is a no wake zone all the way to the docks and/or mooring field. There is plenty of depth west of the trestle. Not so to the east.

    If time permits a visit to little Washington would be a treat. Dockmasters, water & electricity, decent showers and very few transients competing for your time. Several convenience stores close as well as West Marine. Within easy walk restaurants recommended:
    Grub Bros
    Down on Main
    On the Waterfront
    Don’t miss a visit to the Estuarium for an education on the second largest estuary in the U.S.

    So much fun coming to Washington N.C. by boat, rather than so many times by car. This little town is just on the edge of renascence, and they want cruisers to be part of it. The Dock Master, Guy Blackwell, also works at the local West Marine, and is full of information and local history. The city merchants have put together a “Welcome to Washington” bag stuffed full of coupons, business cards, flyers and advertisement for businesses all within a four block walk of the docks. We even ran into people we know. Charming town full of friendship, promise, great restaurants, and art galleries. Come here. You’ll love it.

    We spent a couple of pleasant days at the Washington waterfront docks last on a short cruise from our home port of Oriental. Washington is a nice town, and the people are absolutely fantastic. Blew out half my mainsail luff slides on the way up; nice slip renter on the dock took me up to West Marine (thanks Scott!!), but they didn’t have any. Called Pacific Seacraft (relocated here from CA in 2007) and the owner, Steve Brodie, brought some to the docks; when they didn’t fit, he took me the 9 miles to McCotter’s to get some. How do you quantify that?

    Washington is great. Several restaurants. The Map Room has excellent food with a creative flair. We were fortunate to be there on a Friday night when the town had bands of every type playing in the streets. Nice town dock. West Marine within walking distance.

    Enjoyed Washington, NC. Bought a new 8D battery at West Marine and one of the employees delivered in his truck. No charge and wouldn’t accept a tip!

    I have been spreading the news about your site and am working on Mimi’s Cafe in Little Washington about you. They overlook the downtown docks and will even deliver to your boat! Her SO is a boat bum and she was a charter chef in another life.
