Jacksonville, NC, Family, Friendly Town

November 15th, 2010

11-15-10Bogart and I had a short day with only 4 schools to visit, before getting ready to leave tomorrow morning and visiting the last few Onslow County Schools as we head south out of town. Jacksonville has been over the top friendly. It could be due to the lengthier visit, or the visibility of being in the Veterans Day Parade. Everybody loved The Kindness Bus Tour in Jacksonville. This will be one difficult town to leave, with all the connections we have made. Our stay has been a comfortable one thanks to the great staff at Courts Plus, a family activity center with all types of exercises for everyone. It was the perfect “find” for my lengthy stay. They really came through for me.
During my nearly two week stay, I’ve been trying to find time to visit some of the Veteran’s memorials in Jacksonville. Today was that day; we visited the Vietnam, Lebanon, and 911 monuments. I highly recommend these powerful memorials which pay tribute to those who protect us.
