"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Beaufort, N.C.

Friday morning was a beautiful day to travel, it was sunny, and warm.  We headed about 29 miles north to Beaufort, N.C.  Jim's brother Mike, was kind enough to drive 4 1/2 hours with Rob & Erin, to visit with us.  We had a great visit and drove to a local restaurant for an early dinner.  Thanks again Mike!  Rob & Erin, have a terrific summer it was fun to hear about all your upcoming plans.  This picture below was taken by the waitress, I neglected to realize that she did not get all of us in, Mike is missing.

While in Beaufort, we rented a car and drove to Atlantic Beach, about 10 minutes from the marina.  The sand is very fine, almost like a powder.  It wasn't warm enough for me to go in the water, but there were a few people in. 

The following picture shows you don't need a boat to go out on the water fishing.

Beaufort has some beautiful older homes, many have been restored and are sure to last another 100 years.  We spent the weekend at the Town Creek Marina in Beaufort, and again headed north,  another 25 miles to Oriental, N.C. slowly working our way up the east coast.
