As forecasted, the rain and wind began last evening, and continued to build during the night. We had reservations at Washington, NC today followed by three days at the Onslow Beach FAMCAMP on Camp Legeune, NC, so we debated leaving or staying here, hunkering down, and having to try to change our reservations. We kept looking at the weather maps on our cell phones, and finally decided to move around 10 am. I had unhooked everything but the power, but we still had ...

Our hotel check out was for 11am but we totally missed that. We then drove to New Bern to get some pictures of some places around town that I wanted reminders of from my childhood.
