Blackbeard's Top Ten

WHEN HIS GHOST VISITS BATH AND WASHINGTON, THESE ARE BLACKBEARD'S TOP 10 THINGS TO DO:


10. Visit the oldest church in North Carolina -- St. Thomas Episcopal Church built in 1734 in Bath. Yes, Blackbeard has been known to darken a church door.


9. Check out the graphite money pot ("I knew I left it somewhere") in the historic Van Der Veer House, built in Bath in 1790.

8. Treat yourself to a Butterfly cookie or a doughnut at Brownie Bakery, celebrating its 50th anniversary in Little Washington this year.


7. Buy a treasure map at the Bath Visitor's Center ("I knew I left it somewhere around here.")

6. While there, pick up a map of Bath and take a walking tour of the restored homes in the state's oldest town.

5. Take a walking tour of historic downtown Washington, incorporated in 1782.


4. Have lunch at Bill's Hot Dog Stand in historic Washington. ("Don't pass on the spicy chili -- the recipe is as much a secret as my treasure!")

3. Browse the Pirate's Treasure shop in Bath, where owner Alethia Anderson keeps the tables, walls and stair rail filled with homemade crafts and Christmas decorations.


2. Stop by Bonner Point, on the waterfront in Bath. Look across the river at Plum Point, the place that I once called home.

1. Wind up the day with a plate of shrimp and scallops at Blackbeard's Restaurant in Little Washington.
