Beaufort and Beaufort

Yesterday (Sunday) we took a couple of hours to visit
Beaufort (prononced BewFert) SC.

We stopped at tiny local cafe - Blackstones - a local
institution for our Easter Dinner then walked the waterfront.

While I will admit it's a pretty town, I don't think it holds a candle to our
current home town Beaufort (pronounced Bowfurt)

We took our Easter Self portrait in the water front park.

This morning we got up bright and early and hit the road for our
last leg of this trip...  the road home.

7 hrs later we arrived at our final campsite of the trip...
our driveway.

Pulling in...

The truck alone is the width of the road, and there is a deep ditch on both sides.
Not much room to back this big baby in there.

Back in next to the house,
Now.... where are we gonna go next?

So that's that...
Put a fork in it - our winter trip is done.

I still have a blog or two left about it.
A recap.   List of campsites.

I did an interactive google map where you can click on the map
pins and see the campsites...

This is the map - but not the interactive one just yet.

Each pin marks where we stayed at least one night.
The blue track is our westbound route thru Imperial Dam, then
the route turns red for the Eastbound migration.

That's going to come in a day or two.
Right now we have to get used to this big house and try and
remember where everything is.
