A Visit to the Raleigh Rum Company in Raleigh NC...

A couple of weeks ago Cindy and I decided to go on an adventure.  I searched the internet for things to do and came across the Raleigh Rum Company in Raleigh NC.  They have free tastings and tours every Saturday so off we went.  

If you asked me what I know about rum, the answer would be next to nothing.  The only thing I do know is that I love tropical drinks that contain rum.  

Here is a quote from their website....
"Born of our love for craft beer and cocktails; we marveled at all of the amazing craft beer in NC.  However, in January 2014 we looked around at the liquor shelf and couldn't find nearly as many options for the liquor end. So we decided to help fix that and Raleigh Rum Company was born."


 Tours and tastings every Saturday at 2pm.  It is free.  Click here for details and directions.

 We were treated to drinks and a mini lesson on the workings of the stills and the history of the Rum Company.
We had a great time at the Raleigh Rum Company.  
If you have a free Saturday I suggest you check it out.  
So now when I want a taste of the tropics I will head over, buy a bottle of rum and make myself a tropical drink.  Yum!
Get out and have some fun.

My Stay at The Aerie Bed and Breakfast in New Bern NC

I was excited.  I was finally headed to New Bern NC.  I had been planning this trip for some time.  Now, where to stay? I found a Bed and Breakfast that received outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor.  What do I look for in a review? Friendly people, excellent location, and fantastic sheets.  I love luxurious sheets:-) After a little over a two-hour drive and thanks to my GPS, I arrived at my destination.  (How did we survive without GPS is the big question.  I remember the passenger would be the map reader and instruct the driver in the way they should go and this did not always make for a pleasant trip.)

 "The historic Street-Ward residence, circa 1882, is home to The Aerie, the premier New Bern, North Carolina bed and breakfast inn and event center. The Aerie features a total of nine well-appointed rooms, each with private bath, modern amenities and tasteful décor that reflect the home’s late-Victorian heritage." The beaut…
