North Carolina
"Leave only footprints, take only memories"
(...and maybe some pictures)
But it says 'MEN'!
Okay, it really is a recycle bin at a NC rest area on I-95.
                                                                                  Rental House (TimeShare)
Part of Fairfield Harbour outside of New Bern, NC
Didn't see much of the property but we did explore the area.

The gardens were open to the public, free, for the day.
Beautiful flowers even a Fife & Drum Corps.

                                                                        Tornado Damage, Havelock, NC
Driving from Beaufort we saw a FEMA bus and looked around.  We noticed a
tree twisted and broken...then the homes.
I find it hard to imagine the horror of living thru a tornado.
If anyone was home when this happened, I hope they survived and live a long
and happy life to tell their grandchildren about the day the tornado hit.
May 4, 2011 (Tornado hit Apr 16, 2011)
                                              Latham-Whitehurst Nature Park, New Bern, NC
Kept driving by the sign and thought we would have a look.
Very nice, very new (still under construction) park.
We saw it from kayaking the Broad Creek but didn't know it.
