Overnight in Beaufort

We arrived much earlier in Beaufort than we thought we would. And, you can thank the work on the Morehead City railroad bridge for that. Because of the work, we took the alternate path called the Russell Slough Channel. It was five miles shorter than the preferred route. And, it was a nice path to follow. Carol is of the opinion that it should become our new favorite path for getting to Beaufort Docks.

Since we got into town by three, we went walking about. One favorite shop to visit is Seagrass Whimsical Gifts. The store has a great selection of collectables including little metal signs with sayings like:

They also have soulmate socks- whose motto is "Life's too short for matching socks." So, I bought my first souvenir. 

Yes, my socks do not match. Not only that, but they are made in America with recycled cotton. And, they are comfy.

At dinner time, we decided to eat at Clawson's- which just happens to be right across the street from us.

Yes, the food was very yummy. Check it out.

Today, we will head off toward Wrightsville Beach. Since it is a long trip, we will overnight somewhere along the way.
