North Carolina Bucket List

With every new place we go I try to 
make the best of the area and enjoy
all that it has to offer.
Our new home in North Carolina will be no exception. 

I have already begun thinking about things that should go onto our 
North Carolina bucket list...

Battleship USS North Carolina
Go to 1 of or all 4 of the North Carolina Aquariums
A visit to Bear Island 
Shrimp Festival in Sneads Ferry  
Walking around downtown Wilmington

This is just my very small could do in about a months
time wish list.
What about all of you military wives who have lived in 
this area of North Carolina?
What did you do to entertain your kids?
What about in Raleigh or Charlotte?    
How about local festivals?
