Beaufort- North Carolina

We moved yesterday morning to the town docks here in Beaufort. We had some worries about our day in town because the skies were somewhat ominous.

But, it gradually cleared up, the sun came out, and it was a beautiful day.

Beaufort, NC is one of our favorite towns. It offers so much for the boating community. The little souvenir shop, The General Store, not only has incredible ice cream. It also has a laundromat. Yes, more than three washers. A veritable pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for the average boater. It's clean, and the machines are well maintained. We spent the better part of the morning there. Of course, it doesn't hurt that it's midtown. You can set the timer and go wandering for a bit.

After laundry, we wandered about town. Mike bought another sacrifice for Neptune, God of the Sea. In Mike's case, that would be a hat. He generally loses one most voyages. Yes, he has already done so on this voyage. We did find a replacement in one of the many shops, and it was even on sale. As we like to say, "It had Mike's name on it."

We ended up at Clawson's for dinner. It's our favorite place in Beaufort. They have excellent food at very reasonable prices.

This morning, we woke up to a different weather pattern.

It appears that we are getting closer to home. On the other hand, it means we'll be baking more! There's always a positive, if you but look for it.
