My friends Evelyn and Lewis are staying at the Inlet Inn in Beaufort, North Carolina, while they are here in Carteret County. Their room has a private front porch overlooking the waterfront and the body of water called Taylor's Creek. Here are three views from that porch, taken yesterday afternoon.
Beaufort is a popular stopping-off point for people traveling by boat from New England and other points north down toward Florida. It's a pretty little port town full of historic houses, restaurants, cafés, and grocery stores.
