This was a great trip. We were the first group back after NC’s double hurricanes of 2018. The Trinity Center did an amazing job housing and feeding us considering the extreme circumstances of just a few short weeks prior to our arrival. We had a congenial group and everyone was a pleasure to be with. The historic homes tour of Swansboro was painfully slow and difficult to hear but an extraordinary water tour and thorough history of the inter coastal waterway after the home tour more than made up for it. The tours of New Bern and Beaufort were very good and being a North Carolinian I especially appreciated seeing the comeback these towns made after catastrophic damage of hurricanes Florence and Matthew.
