A day in the life of Beaufort

On our way home from Fripp Island, we thought we do a little sight seeing. 

Our first stop was at Huntington Beach State Park to check out the lighthouse.


It was a HOT day and there were lots of steps but once we were at the top the view was totally worth all the sweat!

It’s a beautiful state park with beach access and camping sites.

Then our next stop was in Beaufort SC to enjoy a little history and some yummy food.  Downtown Beaufort is beautiful and full of great shops.  We were both starving so our first stop was for lunch.  After a little research on Tripadvisor, we decided on Nippy’s.



A cute little spot with yummy seafood.  We had a shrimp roll  - fresh fried shrimp on a New England hot dog bun.  Simple but so good!  Joe had a flounder sandwich with lettuce & tomato.  The tartar sauce was good stuff too!

So once our tummies were full it was on to shopping!  They have a mixture of home & gift shops to clothes, to books, to art.  Lots to look at!

My favorite shop was M Interiors.  Check out some of the great things she had!  Oh and I apologize for the quality of the shots my phone doesn’t take the loveliest pictures.

Cool stuff, right!  She doesn’t have a website or I would share it with you.  I loved the feel of the shop with the sisal wall to wall carpet.  The sand colored walls and the mixture of rustic and sleek items was really nice!

I want to show you some of the beautiful homes of Beaufort – and there were lots – but this post is getting lengthy so another day, promise!

Have you been to Beaufort?  Are there any fun little towns that you have found some great shopping?  Do tell…
