This is the large island at the junction of The Intra Coastal Waterway and White Oak River.
It is largely made up of sand dredged from both to make navigable channels. It is among the highest point of land along our coast line. It is on the east side of the White kOak Rive where it leaves the waterway to go out Bogue Inlet into the Atlantic Ocean. It is on the southside of the waterway across from Cedar Point. It is a favorite spot for picnicking.

more. All this will be reported to Big Sweep. We hope the public will join Big Sweep right
now and pick up all trash and litter where ever they are on our waterways and roads. Best of all,
we hope they will just plain stop litteriing so we can paddle without stopping to do this. We
cannot paddle past it and leave it. It spoils the beauty of our shorelines that we are out to enjoy.
It is just plain ugly.
