Birthday trip to the coast!

My birthday was May 1st so we took a three day trip to the coast of North Carolina. It’s been two decades since I left coastal North Carolina to attend East Carolina University and Morehead City has not changed much. I am more of a big city guy than a small town guy. I only miss the water…

On the way back to Raleigh we stopped in Historic New Bern, North Carolina to visit Tyron Palace. You might recognize the former governor’s mansion as the backdrop for the Sleepy Hollow tv program with Tom Mison.

So much history!

We stopped on the way back to Raleigh in Greenville, NC where I attended East Carolina University, for Mongolian Grill food!
