Merchants Millpond is a state park some 50 km north of Edenton centred around a pond covered by duckweed and with trees and bushes growing in it, giving a very special atmosphere. I rented a canoe to get some exercise before my excursion in the Okefenokee Swamp, but never having been in a canoe before, manœuvring in the duckweed was quite difficult.
