Beaufort, SC (Byew-Fert NOT Boh-Fort)
Now, to further clarify… Boh-Fort is a completely different place, and is in fact, in a completely different state… NC to be exact.
BEAUFORT, SC! Great little town. One great thing is that the marina offers FREE dinghy dockage, and there is a laundry facility right there on the water that is coin operated! Oh, and a great spot to wash off any accumulated sailor stank as well – the showers are wonderful and only cost $1!
In this video, we really just walk around and explore the city a bit. We also take a visit to the Beaufort National Cemetery. Sound creepy? Not at all… it’s a simply wonderful place, and there’s a good, long clip in there where I (Ben) get all sappy. Yes, there’s more to this bloke than fun and games… he has a soft side as well.
11.13 Beaufort SC Today! It was a cold and windy day with a bit of rain. Ben was awesome at the helm most of the day. We went ashore and did laundry and took showers today. The showers were pretty awesome, and they were ONLY $1.00 per person!
11.14 Today we got off the boat and walked to K-Mart and Bi-lo. We did some shopping then we got an UBER back to the marina. We had 7 layer dip for dinner. YUMM! We washed sheets and did a video upload at the local coffee shop.
11.15 Today we did 2 days of homeschool because we missed yesterday. Lynn and Brad from Baila got here from Charleston today. We all walked around town and went to the national Cemetery. I actually didn’t take ANY photos in the Cemetery… So if you want to see how beautiful it was and Ben’s heartfelt comments about it you’ll have to actually watch the video.
11.16 Today we went on a walk over the swing bridge. We walked around town for a bit in search of pants…. no luck. We had dinner and Ben and I watched another Harry Potter movie. Molly taught Ben how to use her new Rainbow Loom.
11.17 Today we hung out on the boat. Then at 4, we met up with Katie and Gabe. I worked with Katie and babysat Gabe years ago at the YMCA in Toccoa. They moved to Beaufort a few years ago and I had no idea! After seeing them for a bit, we went to dinner and had pizza with the Baila crew. After dinner we took showers then went back to the boat. Ben and I watched more Harry Potter tonight.
11.18 Today we left Beaufort and anchored in Skull Creek. N32*13.839 W80*45.362
