Vacation Days 3, 4 and 5

Today I am going to share with you what we did on days 3, 4 and 5 of our vacation. Tomorrow or the day after I promise to wrap it up.  On day three we went to the Seafood Festival in Morehead City which was fun to walk around at.  It was very busy.
We had some of the usual fair food but we really enjoyed the Seafood Spuds that the Sanitary Restaurant serves at the festival.  And check out this yacht, it is a few stories high and has some sort of art exhibit in it.
The yacht is in the background.
We spent the afternoon at the fair and then went out for the evening for dinner with my friend's daughter and some of her friends.

 Sorry, cannot remember the name of the restaurant, but we had some wonderful appetizers, lobster bisque, cheesy biscuits, the best hush puppies I have every had and flounder dinners.  It was great fun.
Picture of the rear of the restaurant from the deck we watched the sunset from after eating.

Day four our host gave us a tour of the base her husband is stationed at and we made some yummy crab cakes for dinner and had a little more down time, we needed it.  On day five we went to New Bern for lunch and some window shopping.   New Bern is the second oldest town in N.C.  and had a lot of older buildings in it. I wish I would have taken pictures of some of the beautiful old homes.
New Bern is also the home of Pepsi Cola, in case you did not know that.  I didn't. 

Love these trees! 

 I was told what kind of trees these are but I have forgotten.  Can someone remind me please?
That is all I have for today.  Hope you are enjoying my picture tour.  Having company for dinner so I better run.  Blessing from our home in the woods!

Nice pictures! Enjoyed hearing about your trip.
The trees look like crepe myrtles like we have here, but not positive about that.
