A Day About Beaufort

It’s not often I get a day with my best girl. We made a day out and about in Beaufort.  A day of making memories.

Lunch on the patio at Plums overlooking the Waterfront Park and the river.

Beaufort is a dog-friendly town. Dogs have a more enjoyable time in the waterfront park area between the river and the shops and restaurants. There’s shade, and places for their people to sit, and well-maintained grassy plots.

I needed to drop off a parcel at the post office, which just happened to be on Charles Street, which meant that we would walk very close to Agnes Mann’s house, and further meant that the Saint Helena Episcopal Church was nearby.  We stopped in the churchyard so I could take a photo of some Sanders folks, who are next to the Mann plot.  Agnes’s son Daniel married Carrie Sanders, so I’m guessing that these folks are related. Regardless, I don’t know when we’ll come this way away.

Gustave Sanders and Bessie Gibson. To the left of their headstone, you can see the rounded curbing that outlines the Mann plot.

Now diagonally across the street, headed back downtown towards the river, is the First Presbyterian Church.

The length of the church runs parallel to the river, and the windows are on each side of the length, which I would suppose allows for the sea breezes to help cool the church in temperate weather.

We are facing north, and in the distance you can see the brick wall of the Saint Helena Episcopal Churchyard. That corner that you see shields the Daniel and Agnes Mann family plot.

The Cuthbert House Inn.

This property has been placed on the NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES by the United States Department of the Interior.
