Left Fayetteville around 10:30; pulled into Cherry Point Marine base at 2:30. What a great day! 72 degrees outside, and the sun is shining! Got so hot I had to take off my sweatshirt. This is warmer than normal for this time of the year (according to a local at the rest stop), and we don’t care, we are just enjoying the warmth.

New Bern was a larger town than I had expected. Not bad, just not what I expected.

The plan for the rest of the day was to just set up our house. We are taking the evening off. Will go and look around tomorrow.

Storm blowing in this evening. 50mph winds expected.
