My friend Hillary and I met up in Beaufort late Friday night. After settling in and cuddling with the cat, we woke up for the beach Saturday. I enjoyed grapefruit and coffee on the porch before Hillary got up. The house we stayed in has a lovely front porch, perfect for morning Bible study and breakfast. 

We stopped by the Beaufort farmers' and craft market then headed to the beach at Fort Macon. I am not usually an ocean swimmer, but the water there was pleasant and calm. 

I finished reading The Robber Bridegroom by Eudora Welty and started on Go Down, Moses by Faulkner. When I go to the library, I often look for what I feel like I missed in my southern literature class in college (either because it wasn't assigned or I just didn't read it). 

Hillary dusted off her ballet skills on the beach. 

We strolled the Beaufort waterfront and I fell in love with this house, still decked out patriotically. 

We waited a little too late for outfit photos, but Hillary did her best and impressed me with her photography. 

I saw this Just Madras dress at High Line last summer, then I saw Mackenzie wearing it on the Tuckernuck blog this spring. I had to have it, and I was thrilled when I went by High Line this summer and found exactly what I wanted. Now I want it in every color! My earrings are Moon and Lola, belt is hand me down from Mom, and sandals are Jack Rogers. 

Our romantic stroll coincided with the super moon. 

Seriously, who owns this house, and will they let me rent a room?!

On Sunday morning, we went kayaking on Taylor's Creek. After our workout, I had to go in the recently opened SOUTHERN fROCK store, where I found the best fitting wrap dress I have ever put on! We spent a little more time on the beach, then I stopped by Dee Gee's before heading home. What a charming place to get away!
