We were at the North Carolina coast for a couple of days.
The sea air, mixed with some very heavy rain the first day,
cleared the cobwebs and brought some time to relax, meet
up with old friends. . . . . .and make a few new ones.
New Bern, North Carolina’s second oldest town, was founded in
1710 by Swiss nobleman, Christoph von Graffenried, and named
after his native city of Berne, Switzerland. Bern means “bear” and the
“Bern Bear” symbol is seen on its flag. Throughout the city you will
see many creative Bear Town Bears.
New Bern is a riverfront city near the North Carolina coast.
The Tryon Palace complex includes a replica of the state's
1st capitol, historic homes, gardens and the North Carolina
The Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola is the drugstore where the
drink was invented in the 1890s.
Love the town of New Bern, NC
This historic home is on the market but requires so much work.
Hopefully someone with deep pockets will adopt her, restore her,
and bring back her beauty of long ago.
Waiting for the storm to pass.
Morning brought sunshine. . . . . but the boats stayed put. Don't you
wonder why so many people buy boats but never seem to use them?
More on this lovely bookshop, and the owner, coming soon!
