Had a blue sky day, boat left at 3:00 p.m. for a 2 hour tour on a Friday. The Captain was knowledgeable on the history of New Bern as well as up to date on New Bern happenings. The river was very beautiful and calming, a great way to start the weekend.
Seen lovely homes on the Trent River to include Nicholas Sparks home and his ex-wife's house which was being built down river. A comment was made by someone who hadn't been to New Bern in a long time about "he had forgotten how much money was in New Bern". Seen an old plantation home, seen the property owned by heirs of the Minge (Pepsi Owners) and the heirs to the Hanes underwear property. Lovely homes and docks, alot of history about Union Point and the Civil War in New Bern, learned about the old drawbridge and the new drawbridge as well as Former Governor Perdue's help with the new bridge.
Great time, great people on the tour. I learned about the Armed Forces Vacation Club from a couple visiting from Ohio. Will have a chance to go on vacation soon.
