          Take historical tour offered by inn, and eat at local spots on water. Provisions was a simple yet great food. We were amazed at all the movies and TV shows that were filmed in area. Also enjoyed the car ferry from Wilmington to Southport.

          Hi Robert Ruark Inn, I am trying to make my 11 yo's dream of a turtle walk come true on BHI between July 18th and July 24th. I will have two adults, two seniors, one teen and one 11yo in my party. I am worried that the turtle walks, which I guess could go until 10:30 pm, will be too late for us to catch the ferry. There doesn't seem to be any place to stay on BHI. Please help. Thanks. Shelly
