Beautiful Beaufort SC

After a terrific broad reach sail from Hilton Head all the way across Port Royal sound to the Beaufort River, we spent a wonderful day exploring Beaufort (that's Bufort to fellow northern folk) with it's amazing preserved architectural wonders shown below. The foodie highlights of the day were having shrimp cheese grits for breakfast and homemade key lime pie for lunch. At breakfast we met local celebrity actress Ione who was in the Big Chill .We enjoyed a carriage tour through the historic district (read the entire town) then walked some on our own see the estate Tidalhom where the Big Chill was filmed. Thenafter a quick lunch/dessert of key lime pie and sweet tea, Jay returned to the boat while Cindy joined in a game of bocce ball with some locals, and back to the boat to prepare for our departure tomorrow. We met some fellow sailors from Quebec (Jean-Marie, Linda and their daughter aboard the Domaine de Florence who also have a french language blog going.
