Wilmington, North Carolina

We’re making our way north and have entered into North Carolina, heading for Wilmington. No historic tours this time – but Marj and I found some time for our favorite pastime, perusing the antique stores! While we were shopping, the guys headed for Battleship North Carolina, manned by 3,000 marines and navy servicemen and officers. They really enjoyed touring this historic WWII battleship as you can see below.

After shopping, Marj and I headed for the seashore. There were some significant waves today on the Atlantic with quite a few surfing lessons going on – Marj and I decided to pass on the activity! We got some great pics though and completely enjoyed looking at the gorgeous “seaside cottages” up and down the beach.

This is my kind of HAPPY TRAIL!!

There is so much natural beauty here as well – one of our favorites is the Crape Myrtle trees which seem to be in full bloom. Colors range from white, light pinks through dark pinks, reds and purples. I couldn’t help but to buy one as they should grow well in our climate zone in Southwest Florida!

Our next stop is one I’m kind of excited about – Rodanthe/Hatteras Island, NC in the outer banks. Our campground has the Atlantic on one side and the Sound on the other, that’s how narrow this island is!!

We’re almost caught up with the posts now matching where we actually are. As always, Happy Trails!!
