One week later...

Battleship USS North Carolina across the Cape Fear River from downtown historic Wilmington, NC
It's a week now since our arrival in Wilmington, NC and we are still here...
Not our usual way of traveling!  But we have a malfunctioning refrigerator that is not responding well to attempted repairs.  A problem?  Not really -
* our RV repair center here is great!  Friendly and easy to work with, and free shady parking with hook-ups, handy to town and to beaches.
* Lots to do here in Wilmington - great restaurants, seafood, historical things to explore, nice weather, friends to see nearby.
* Tickets to a musical tonight - Legally Blonde - in a beautiful theater first built in 1855, with major recent restoration.
* Incredible self-guided tour of the restored battleship USS North Carolina.  Amazing...

We are not minding staying awhile!

Wilmington, NC

We have become so good at winding down when traveling, went right into the groove this trip out and have been poking along, getting to the East Coast 30 days later.  2,501 miles from our driveway, we are in Wilmington, NC. 
Celebrated the first night here with a fantastic dinner with a fantastic view at Oceanic Restaurant at Wrightsville Beach.

One reason for our being here - visiting our Peruvian family.  Maria was an exchange student from Peru in 1966, living for 2 months with Sally's family.  They are now NC residents and SO gracious and interesting.  We have loved spending time with them.
