You know how sometimes LIFE just takes over and changes all of your plans? It is easy to get all tangled up in the red tape of planning an event only to find at the last minute, the weekend you carefully picked a year ago needs to be changed! The best laid plans and all that, or perhaps the Almighty working in mysterious ways…in any case, Trinity has space!
Due to some recent last minute rescheduling, Trinity will have space available next weekend, November 12-15th. If you need to get away for some peace and quiet, give us a call. If you want to have some quality family time away from distractions, give us a call. If the kids are busy and you want an “adults only” weekend, give us a call. We’ve got space!
Trinity always has quiet, relaxing places to enjoy. There are always fascinating nature trails to explore. There is always the ocean for wave watching and shell hunting. However, there are actually a few nifty things going on in the Carteret County area this weekend too:
