Our adventure this week was a trip to New Bern, NC for a church meeting and our newest calling - to teach Institute this summer. We went a little early to look around and LOVED what we saw. This area was founded by Swiss colonists- naming it for Bern, Switzerland. There is a lot of history here. There's a place where the Civil War was fought, beautiful historical buildings, and the Tyron Palace Complex where the governor lived in Colonial times - so we really want to come back again and take a tour. Young singles from our branch live here and travel to church weekly. This is a picture of the bridge we crossed coming here. (The bridge is much longer.)
For you Pepsi fans, this is the pharmacy where Pepsi-Cola was created. It was first called "Brad's Drink." Wish I could show you more of this beautiful place. It felt like a mini vacation to us and became our date night for the week.
