On Tuesday I asked if any of our readers know what is meant when we talk of Ocracoke's South Dock.
It may be counter-intuitive, but the South Ferry Dock is on Ocracoke's north end. You might wonder why this would be, but after a moment's reflection you will see the logic. Hatteras Inlet has two NCDOT ferry docks: one on the north side of the inlet (on the south end of Hatteras Island); the other on the south side of the inlet (on the north end of Ocracoke Island). When ferry personnel are talking about the ferry operation across Hatteras Inlet they will refer to the North Dock (on Hatteras) or the South Dock (on Ocracoke).
The ferry docks in Silver Lake are simply called the Cedar Island/Swan Quarter docks.
