Natural picnic area. We are bringing all the food and beverages for the picnic,

July 16 (Friday), 9AM: Boardwalk & Boats!
Join us as we travel to Wilmington for lunch at one of the
great boardwalk seafood restaurants along the waterfront. Feel free to eat in
the same restaurant with your chaperones or break off to any of the other
restaurants in the area. After lunch, we will step aboard the white and blue
double-decker Henrietta for a
relaxing, informative and scenic cruise on the Cape Fear River. Upon leaving
the dock, we will cruise upriver to the forks of two major rivers then head
south past Historic Wilmington, the Battleship North Carolina and Eagles.
During the cruise, the captains will give you a snapshot of Wilmington’s
history from the early explorers to Modern day ships from all over the world
and more. The Henrietta has an enclosed (air-conditioned) lower deck and an
open, covered upper deck. After our 1PM cruise, we will head back to Goldsboro.
We will take a restroom/stretch break at the Duplin County Rest Area near
