Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge from New Inlet

Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge from New Inlet Professional Review and Guide

"Pea Island is another of those places on the Outer Banks that is no longer an island. Pea Island was once cut off by one of several inlets, which have opened and closed over the years. One of those, New Inlet, was opened during a storm in 1933, with two separate passages.

The residents of Hatteras Island built narrow wooden bridges across both passages to permit them to drive up the beach. The inlet closed soon after the bridges were built and they were not used again. Their remains still stand."
