Jumpin' & Cryin'

Beaufort, SC


Todd, Sean, and I spent the day in Beaufort, SC  on Saturday which is about 40 minutes from our house on Hilton Head Island.  Todd's parents were in town so they had Syd for the day.  We were planning on attending the air show, but the traffic was crazy.  We didn't even know about the crash till we got home that afternoon and saw it all over the news.  We saw black smoke in the skies while we were in downtown Beaufort walking around and wondered about it but never dreamed it was a crash...

Downtown Beaufort is beautiful!  Forrest Gump was filmed here. There are about 12 art galleries with a very wide range of art including local artists.  We found a local winery that actually operates in downtown Beaufort and the waterfront is gorgeous!  There are several NY Times bestselling authors that live in the low country (the name for this area).  We discovered their works in a couple of the bookstores.  There is beautiful outdoor seating at some really great restaurants.  We ate lunch at a brick oven pizza place called Paninis that my hair stylist recommended.  Such a jewel in this area that we are so happy to have discovered!
