Beaufort, SC







After a rainy, windy night at anchor, we got a slip at the City Marina for tonight. Wouldn't you know, no wind today. We have had a nice afternoon enjoying our tour of Beaufort.
We took the carriage ride around the historic district and learned a lot about Beaufort. The houses here are all so unique and beautiful. They remind me some of the Charleston homes but different in their own way. We had a delicious dinner tonight at Saltus. It was a restaurant here near on the waterfront. They have the most wonderful waterfront park here that we have ever seen. There are paved walkway with railings of chain along the water, swings and benches are all along the walk, a playground with neat things for children to play on. The American Star Cruise Liner was here this afternoon, but pulled out about dark headed toward Jacksonville, FL. We have met some really nice people here on the docks today. Most of them are also headed to Florida or the Bahamas. We plan to leave in the morning and head further south. We are not sure just how far we will go. Will keep you posted.
Love,
Nelson & Ondra

Hi Ondra & Nelson,
The pictures of Charleston were really beautiful. Glad you are having a good time. Stay safe and warm; it is supposed to turn cold this week.

I'm loving your trip. i get to see all the sites and stay warm and not have to do any of the work! Which reminds me- the photographer is a little slack in posting pics.
