06/02: Saturday. New Bern, NC. We had thunderstorm warnings last night, but just got some rain and a nice breeze. Got up early to make sure we’d have room to park at the dragon boat races. Lol – we pretty much could park anywhere we could fit at 7:30 in the morning. The races were to start at 8:30. The venders were still setting up in the park. There were 3 sets of metal bleachers and some people brought some lawn chairs, a few wooden park benches.  There weren't a whole lot of people there.  It sounds like some teams had only gotten to practice together the day before, so, it was interesting. This is the first year they’ve done it, it should get better.

After the races we walked through the town and did some caching, taking pictures, went to the farmers market. All in all was a pretty good day and not having to pay for anything!  We had a lot of people looking at the RV as they walked by on the sidewalk; don’t think many of them had seen one before, interesting comments. New Bern had their 300th anniversary in 2010 and for that they had fiberglass bears painted and put around the town, which are still there. So we got pictures of those, and also they have painted fire hydrants in the historic district, and some beautiful old buildings.

Went to Washington, NC for the night. We’re going to work our way up to Kitty Hawk.
