Beaufort By The Sea

We got up this morning to 40 degree temperatures inside the boat, so we went back to bed for an hour. It did not significantly warm up in that time. I lost the coin toss, and got up to make coffee. Since the wind was poor, we headed to Beaufort anchor, and knock about there for the day. After dropping the hook, we took the dinghy to the local marina to have lunch at Hemmingway's. If you ever dine there, try the french onion soup. I thought it was great, and Bob informs me that it is every bit as good as that at Rue De Jean in Charleston, which I understand is noted for it's onion soup. Beaufort is like a quieter version of Charleston, so it was fun just looking around at interesting houses, and absorbing some history. We finished up are visit with a cup of coffee at the Common Ground. As we headed back to the marina, we admired a lot of nice sail boats anchored near us, and Bob took the
opportunity to quiz me on different types of rigging.
