New Bern 2018

For our last camping trip of the year, we headed back down to North Carolina to go sailing since we were not able to sail when we were down there in the spring. We left Thursday afternoon and traveled a few hours before stopping overnight at a Walmart in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.

Our favorite campground was closed due to damage from Hurricane Florence and the New Bern KOA was closed to the public as it was providing shelter for locals due to hurricane damage. We wanted to be in New Bern so we didn’t have a long commute to the sailboat each day and ended up finding a site at Moonlight Lake RV Park and Cottages. I have zero pictures of our setup because it was not pretty, but luckily Chris had some photographic evidence. They have cottages that look pretty nice but the RV spots were less than ideal. Fortunately, we were not planning to spend a lot of time at the campground!

Mike and Eric came over shortly after we arrived on Friday night. We grilled some pizza, got cozy, and watched Ferdinand in the camper. Fun fact: This was the first and only time we’ve used the TV in this camper. The boys didn’t like the movie (they think every movie is scary!) and ended up going to bed early but the adults finished watching it!

The next morning, we packed some lunches and headed over to Northwest Creek Marina for some sailing. The boys each got a turn to drive the boat and did really well!
