By the time the evening hit the rain had stopped in New Bern although the ground was still soggy and everything was wet. We headed downtown again for some dinner at Captain Ratty’s Seafood. We head the hand cut onion rings for an appetizer they were SO GOOD. I am a pretty big onion right critic and these ones were awesome because the onion right didn’t pull out and you could easily bit through (hopefully that makes since to the onion ring eatings out there.) I also at the clam chowder (with bacon) and Clark had the shrimp & grits. This place had good service and really good food. Definitely recommended.
After dinner we walked around and spotted tons of New Bern bears. They are everywhere. I love when town’s do something like that. We found 7 and weren’t really even looking. The town of New Bern is super cute and has lots of great little local shops which I am always fond of. We went into a dog boutique store and even got ice cream at an old school- cash only- walk up Dairy Queen. Score.
