Cute, cute town

Diana/clear and cool and sunny
We left Pango Creek and took the canal further south through the backwoods of North Carolina. Navigating and maneuvering was tricky in spots. We saw lots of dolphins playing in the canal outside of Beaufort. The canal dumped us in a bay which had lots of outlying sandy banks sitting at the edge of moor-like islands which are part of the Outer Banks (OBX). We had a nice surprise to see the marina we had booked a spot at was in a great position on Front Street just off the old town. We decided to spend an extra day here to see the sites and enjoy the beautiful weather. We rode our foldable bikes around town - now they are foldable but not flimsy - amazingly. They are Dahon. Brilliant. We cleaned the boat in the morning in the sunny beauty of the waterfront before taking off. We rode the backstreets past many historic homes from the 1700's, stopped at the Old Burying Ground where there are Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers buried as well as settlers from Indian Wars. Contrast that with our next stop - The Piggly Wiggly! Those of us raised in the south remember them well. The ham hocks section was huge - many different kinds of pork fat products - the staple of southern cooking.
