Travel Day - Cherry Point, NC.

We were up early Sunday morning getting ready for our travel day to Cherry Point, NC.  Judy and I went to a nearby Hardees for a quick breakfast before daylight since it is hard to pack-up and hitch-up in the dark!  Hardees is our favorite fast-food breakfast restaurant.  When we returned to the base we surprised the four person gate security team as they checked our IDs with four breakfast biscuits and four large coffees.

It was 9:00 AM as we departed the base for the last time this trip.  We had planned to leave by 8:15- 8:30  but a rain delay forced the later departure. For any military readers of the blog, the Sea Mist RV Park at Dam Neck gets a five out of five rating!

It was 210 miles to the Pelican Point RV Park at MCAS Cherry Point, NC. Except for having to drive the first two hours in steady rain it was an easy drive.   We arrived at the park by 2:00PM.  The park has only been opened for a few months.  It is well laid out and big rig friendly.  Before we had completed setting up Dee and Jim arrived and set up very near to us.  We are both going to be here for two weeks and then we are going to travel down to Myrtle Beach for a week with the Carolina Clan group. In December we will be back at Adelaide Shores RV Resort in FL. for three months with them. I am sure we will be doing a lot here with Dee and Jim.

We finished off the evening by going out to the "Outback Steak House" in New Bern. The 12th was our 39th wedding anniversary.  They weather was just too wet to go out on the 12th, so we waited so we could share it with our friends here.

Here are a few pics of the park;
