Hello there! A few weeks ago my family and I took a little weekend road trip to Wilmington, North Carolina. Those are always fun especially when they are spontaneous.
We actually went to go meet some good friends of ours who are considering moving to Wilmington, NC.
One of our first stops on the list was the USS North Carolina!
across TTThe river from downtown Wilmington, beckons visitors to walk her decks. Envision the daily life and fierce combat her crew faced in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.
young men who had grown up in the crucible of the Great Depression and now determined to serve their Country in its time of need. These are the men whose stories you will encounter through their oral histories, photographs, and mementos as you experience the Ship and the exhibits.

My boys truly enjoyed this day! I would recommend the tour for everyone who visits Wilmington.
Not easy though, going up and down the tiny little stairs. The young men back then were very small.
All about a 26 wasteline, which is pretty small.
Aside from the wondeful tourism, we also visited a few beaches. Wilmington has gorgeous beaches, and I was pretty in aw over the sprawling white sands.
This is one aspect of South Florida, I am certain my husband misses. The BEACH!
We managed to squeeze in a little shopping and walking the down town area as well.
It was nice to see Alex with his BF together. They are more like brothers. Friends since Alex was 13 months old.
I can only imagine their conversation, I am thinking, all about
My friends are definitely leaning toward a move there.
If you live there or know anyone who does, I would love to hear more about it. The nice thing for us, is that it is only 3 hours away. Who knew? I never realized how close we are.
I will say it was a boring 3 hour drive, all back roads from here.
