A Day in Beaufort

Today we spent the day with Gia showing us around Beaufort then we took the kids to the pool for a couple of hours.  Tonight we went to dinner at a restaurant that she had read a review about called the Foolish Frog.  One of their specialties was Frogmore Stew and that is what she and I both had.  I was tempted to get Shrimp and Grits AGAIN but decided to try something different for a change.  It was yummy!  Thanks Gia and Jason for treating me to a yummy dinner of Frogmore Stew at the Foolish Frog!

This was just one of the many gorgeous mansions we saw today.  This Greek Revival-style home, dubbed “The Castle” for its medieval undertones, is one of the most photographed homes in the country. According to legend, an affable ghost—a dwarf named Grenauche—roams the Beaufort, S.C., property, showing itself only to sick children in need of cheer.  Forces of Nature was filmed in and around The Castle.
I loved how the trees reached all the way down and touched the ground!
