Fireworks Over Harbor in New Bern, North Carolina
Recently, we were fortunate to be able to visit with some dear friends who moved out of state a few months ago. Spending some time with them and watching our nation's birthday celebrated with fireworks has become a tradition for our families, one that we immensely enjoy. But this year's Fourth of July celebration was even more spectacular than ever, since we watched the enormous fireworks display with our friends as we sat beside the beautiful harbor of New Bern, North Carolina. Not only does my best friend now live in this quaint and historic town that is the cradle of North Carolina's colonial and early government, but it is also the town in which one of my maternal ancestors settled. During the next few weeks, watch here for photos of New Bern and posts about the Fenner family of North Carolina and its early American beginnings.
