day 72 ~ wilmington to new bern, nc via emerald island

after a stop in downtown wilmington to meet a dear friend’s mother for the first time, we quit wilmington and head out to emerald island where we check out the ocean and hoop creek and have some bojangles. we end up in new bern, nc, birthplace of pepsi-cola.

and here is a panorama of downtown new bern, right out front of the pepsi-cola storefront.

dday 69 ~ leaving raleigh-durham for wilmington, nc

we enjoy the raleigh for a few more hours before heading towards wilmington, nc and the beach. swimming, hot tub, delicious handground hot chocolate, and then a beautiful drive at sunset.

the historical site that tim cannot remember in the above video is the mordecai house. here is a panorama — a cubist panorama at that; check out how the bench turned out — of this historic building. and yes, i discovered that andrew johnson was in fact the president of this country…right after abraham lincoln was murdered.

the chocolate shop in the daily video journal is escazu chocolates, a pretty remarkable artisan chocolate shop with just the most beautiful sweeties. we got a couple of mexican hot chocolates and chatted a bit with the woman working the till:

also appearing in the video journal is the raleigh amtrak station. while tim and i were there, we reminisced about the last time we had been there:

and last but not least, here is an audio recording made at the market restaurant, a cute little bistro serving delicious food made with locally sourced ingredients.
