We are slowly starting to explore new places in North Carolina again. I’ve said this before, but one of the things I love about living in NC is the ease of road travel and the variety of places to see and visit. From coastal towns to mountain tops and all things in between… There’s just enough of everything, to never get bored.
New Bern is a riverfront city near the North Carolina coast. Did you know that New Bern was the first capitol of North Carolina? I didn’t.
We stayed at this lovely bed & breakfast, that was walking distant to all of the restaurants, shops, and historic sites. Breakfast was delicious, and the coffee did not disappoint. The Aerie also spoiled us with a wine happy hour every evening at 5:00pm. It was so interesting and fun to chat with other guests at the inn. We found ourselves exchanging tv show and book recommendations. You can learn a lot about people from what they read and watch.
Our time in New Bern was short, but perfect. It was good to get in the car and go. To rest the brain from trying to get the gears going again, and so many worries that have left us all depleted. Whether it’s a weekend road trip somewhere local, or a walk in your local park, I hope you find some time in your days for a bit of a reprieve.
