Two of the Maynard brothers make minor repairs to the Endora’s jib while docked at the Bald Head Island marina. The picturesque island requires a golf cart (or bicycle) for any significant exploration.
Bald Head Island sits just off the coast of North Carolina near Southport. Accessible only by boat or ferry, the island is a popular destination for vacationers and day-trippers alike.

Jonathan Maynard relaxes in the afternoon sun.
Old Baldy stands watch over Bald Head Island and was once the only sailor’s beacon to the mouth of the Cape Fear River, leading to Wilmington, N.C. Wooded golf cart and bike paths provide a relaxing way to travel the nearly 13,000-acre property.
Ferries to and from Southport, N.C., come and go, day and night, delivering passengers and supplies to Bald Head Island’s town center. Nighttime views are virtually free from light pollution.
