A few weeks after arriving in Beaufort, SC, from Atlanta, in the spring of 1996, I noticed something -- It never seemed to rain in Beaufort. Indeed, for weeks on end, it seemed I rarely noticed a cloud. To be sure, it rains in Beaufort, SC. In fact, one of my favorite things in the whole world is an early evening thunderstorm.
Suffice it to say, my first impressions of Beaufort were terrific. Almost seventeen years later, life keeps getting better in Beaufort. Rarely do you go out and not encounter a familiar face. And even the not-so-familiar faces tend to be happy ones.
The photo above is from the Avenue of Oaks, in an area we call Coffin Point. The Avenue of Oaks is about 20 to 25 minutes due east of downtown Beaufort.
I was meeting with a homeowner a few days back, and, although I have traversed the Avenue of Oaks many, many times, but the afternoon was so pleasant and the skies so blue, I just felt compelled to shoot a picture. The home in the background is the old Coffin family plantation home. Beyond that is St. Helena Sound, and just beyond that the Atlantic Ocean.
Coffin Point is a popular location for those seeking a vacation home. Hunting Island State Park is just around the corner, and there are multipe boat launches convenient to the area, for boating enthusiasts.
