Abstract:
Roanoke Island is the place where North Carolina's five great sounds meet. In the north the Albemarle flows into the Currituck Sound. The water then moves into either the Roanoke or the Croatan Sound as it passes on either side of the island, and finally merges at the south end with the Pamlico Sound. An individual taking a boat ride around the island can truthfully say that in one day he or she has sailed through the state's five sounds.
