    We travel around the Albemarle Loop while heading south for the winter. The docks are excellent with power, water, and pump-out (via Dispatch 252-426-5751 for a worker to operate the pump equipment on shore). It's a 1-2 block walk into downtown with an informative Visitor Center, impressive Catfish Jimmy Hunter museum, a corner drug store with double dips of ice cream for 82 cents at the fountain, restaurants, hardware and other shops, a convenience/gas station, and street corner fresh produce trailer. On Oct. 30 the merchants celebrate Halloween by giving out treats to the town's children in costume. The town offers other frequent activities, such as yesterday's Tractor Parade to Missing Mill Park for lunch (2 blocks away). www.VisitPerquimans.com for current activities. This is one of eight Albemarle Loop towns that offer 48 hours of free dockage to attract boaters. The S Bridge is the only one in the US and is to be replaced sometime in the future. However, it has the most courteous tenders, operates without any problems, and quickly opens upon request (Channel 13) in the off season from 10 am to 10 pm daily. It is a delightful place to go, see, and enjoy.
