We're off to Beaufort, NC tomorrow for our summer hols! Can't wait.
Love the place. We first discovered it in 2004, when on a fortnight's summer break from San Diego, ostensibly for FlysWithKiwiBird's cousin's wife's ordination. Cousin Dick used to be the long-time skipper of Duke's research vessel, Cape Hatteras, whose home port is Beaufort. Dick and Mary still own the lovely house they lived in for all those years and, as they now live in Clinton, NC, we're very gratefully allowed to use the house.
We'll be there for at least ten days, and hope to get baby Andrew out to Shackelford Island to see the wild horses and experience salt-laden-sea-air for the first time. At nearly four months, I have high expectations for him.
So not only will we be packing backgammon, scrabble, pack of cards, a thousand nappies and the last six months of unread Vanity Fairs, but the kayak will be going too. Could well be the perfect holiday!
