Judy and I accompanied Jim & Dee and his mom, Ms. Alberta to the seaside town of Beaufort, NC today. Jim’s sister Sharon and husband Jim joined us for lunch at a local seafood restaurant.
We had a slight hold up on the way to the waterfront.
The first stop was the Beaufort Maritime Museum. Jim said it had been upgraded a lot since his last visit. Many exhibits highlighted the local fishing industry over the years.
Black Beard's pirate ship the Queen Anne’s Revenge was located in 1996 about a mile and a quarter off shore. An extensive artifact recovery effort has been underway since its discovery. Many of the recovered artifacts are on display. Very little of the wooden ship’s structure survived the last couple of hundred years (sank in 1718) in 125 feet of water.

After leaving the museum we took an ice cream break before taking a look at the waterfront.
We took a small shopping break also. One of the shops had a sale going on (don’t they all) so Judy bought us a new pair of Crocs and her some clothing.
Once we were through with our walkabout we went to Sharon and Jim’s home to visit awhile.
That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
