Good day from New Bern, the second oldest city in North Carolina. I'll start with some background and history about New Bern before I go any further.
New Bern was settled in 1710 by Swiss and Palatine immigrants led by Christoph von Graffenreid. They named the settlement after Bern, the capital of Switzerland. But long before the Europeans arrived, the Tuscarora Indians also lived along New Bern's riverbanks in a village they called Chattoka.
... bit around the grounds and saw that they also have horseshoe pit, bounce pad (like a bounce house without the house) and a small, homemade miniature golf course. The grounds are very well maintained and it seems to have thinned out as it is pretty empty around here. In our premium section, there are only three of us here out of the several spaces available. There are a couple of tent spaces near us that are also occupied.
With the afternoon ...
... times are nice.
Our next reservation is at Roanoke Island across the bay from Nags Head. Problem is that is where the outer band of the storm is so we will give them a call and make our decision whether we need to stay here another night. We called and they said it was raining off and on but they haven't been flooded since Hurricane Sandy so we are heading north at noon!!
... up closing the place down. When we were getting ready to leave, it was pouring down the rain. We talked about a cab but figured by the time the cab got there, if one came, we could already be at the hotel so we headed out. By the time we got there, we were all soaked, rain dripping off our heads wet. We all were laughing pretty hard by the time we got to the hotel. Thank goodness it was a long overnight so I could hang my clothes up to dry ...
... other went without a hitch. We have read each other our emails, blogged, and shared our inner most concerns. Not a day went by, Drew didn't ask me what I learned & truthfully, couldn't put it in words. Our politics and life dreams are on same page & much more to see and do. I appreciate all the support I got from you to 'Go for it' and as my son Adam said, "Mom, I am glad you are living life"... What a way to Go Maggie!
