July 4th weekend in New Bern
09 July 2010 | New Bern
A wonderful July 4th weekend in New Bern & Oriental. It was New Bern's 300th anniversary of being the original NC Capitol & second oldest city in the State. Oriental held their annual Croaker Festival.
The weather was fantastic. Thursday July 1 was spent working on the boat other than a quick swim in the pool. Friday we toured the old town of New Bern. Saturday was the Oriental Croaker Festival, then back to New Bern for the Beach Music Festival. Ate at Morgan's Tavern for dinner. Sunday was a pool day, then to Bridgetown (across the Neuse River from New Bern) to watch the Air Show & Fireworks over the river. Fantastic weather & a great weekend.
