Beaufort, NC












First of all it is good to know that it's pronounced BOW-fort! Not to be confused with Beaufort, SC (pronounced like the beau in beautiful) This is very important in these parts.
Beaufort, NC is an amazing little town that is rich with history. Old homes (like early 1800's) line the waterfront historical area and ghost tours and stories of Blackbeard the Pirate are just one of their claims to fame.
We took a boat ride to watch some dolphins. Those are not sharks in that photo, but they were so fast, I could not get a good photo of them.
We enjoyed some great food, some beautiful wildlife and great family time.
I can't wait to go back for another visit! There are beaches just a boat ride away with wild ponies, lighthouses and amazing shelling. But for now, I have these wonderful photos and memories of our time there.
For more Wordless Wednesday go to 5 Minutes for Mom

That is a beautiful town. I would so enjoy visiting there. It reminds me of Cape May, NJ. Lots of old victorian homes and tree lined streets.

I've lived in S. Carolina and those shots remind me a bit of that.

Beautiful town. I love beach towns. We live in Missouri (where I am originally from) now, but we lived in NC for three years. It is my husband's home state. We still have friends and family there and I miss it like crazy! I love visiting Wilmington and the Outer Banks area.
