We tied to the city dock in Beaufort (bow-fort) NC.  Very nearby was this tour boat which took hordes of school kids to islands on the Outer Banks.  Then in the evening, it did dining and sightseeing cruises for tourists.  Felt rather on display!   [Bill is standing at the sliding door in the salon to take this picture.]

Beaufort is also the home of a large commercial fishing fleet.  This view of the fleet was taken as we walked the beautiful and peaceful streets of Beaufort.

In Belhaven, NC, we borrowed a golf cart to travel the 3-4 miles to the Food Lion supermarket.  It worked very well, if a little slowly, on the city streets. Although, we did collect some curious looks.

On Thursday, we crossed Albemarle Sound.  It is a huge body of fresh water the color of root beer and prone to be choppy or even rough to cross.  We had a tranquil day and crossed in about 1.5 hours.  This is a view of the Sound as we left the Alligator River.
