After a restful night’s sleep out under the stars at Pettigrew State Park, Eva, Josh and I headed north in search of Merchant’s Mill Pond State Park near the North Carolina and Virginia border. The drive through the countryside was inspiring, all en route we saw countless signs in people’s yards opposing the OLF the Navy wants to build near important bird sanctuaries and multi-generational family farms. It was heart-warming to see such organized opposition in such a pastoral place.
