Day 9. Camp Lejeune NC to Bridgeton NC. 54.7 miles

   Today was a planned short day due to the distance after Bridgeton to the next lodging.  So I took advantage of the short ride and great Camp Lejeune accommodations.  I slept until 7:30, took my time, did the blog, ate some breakfast and was on the road at 10:10.  Of course it was another almost 5 miles to bike off the base and I rejoined the route after 10 miles of riding.  So my journey through the base for  outstanding accommodations only added about 4 miles to my route.  The days ride was in the country side the whole day.  I was riding by tobacco, cotton and peanut fields.  I had a late 1:00 lunch and took my time to get to the New Bern bridge over the Neuse River.  The bridge had a wide shoulder littered with a lot of stuff, and the way the bridge was grooved and sides made it very noisy.  A couple of miles after the bridge I arrived at a very nice KOA campground, with a cabin.  There was no food available near the KOA so I stopped at a local dinner and took a Pork chop and grilled cheese sandwich, got soda, cookies and ice cream at the camp store for a fabulous dinner in my cabin.  It’s bring your own bedding (sleeping bag), has a TV, refrigerator and AC with shower next door. Fabulous.

Skyped our grand daughter for her birthday  tonight.  Only 2 more days of riding to see  son Aaron for the weekend!  This is my cabin!
