A Day in Beaufort

We spent today sight seeing around Beaufort and looking at all the beautiful old homes, then went downtown to all the little shops.  There was a winery so we went in and did a wine tasting.  It was a cute little place and the wine was actually pretty good!  After the wine tasting we looked in a few shops before going to Blackstone's Cafe' for a lunch of Shrimp & Grits.  After lunch, more shopping!   The bugs may me horrible here during most of the year, but this weekend, it is absolutely gorgeous, cool, no bugs and such a quaint little downtown area.  I love it!
Lunch at Blackstone's Cafe'.  Neat little 2 story restaurant, filled with movie posters from all the movies that have been filmed in the area.
Renee, I took this picture just for you!
This gentleman worked at Blackstone's Cafe' and he was an extra in the movie "Forces of Nature" with Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck.  He was so nice and showed us his personal photo album from the filming.
At the end of the day, we stopped in at The Chocolate Tree, a one-stop-shop for fine chocolates and other confections made right on the premises!  It was a cute little place and of course everyone was happy to get a little chocolate treat!
Beautiful Sunset on the way back to Paris Island

This is pretty much what Dave and Jason did all weekend long.  They sat and played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare every chance they got.  
And Gia and I worked on our blog books!
