Coastal beauties

Galen and I took a day trip on Saturday and drove to the coast. North Carolina has some beautiful coastal towns. We headed east toward Plymouth, then Belhaven, and then to Edenton.

One of my most favorite things to do is meander through the towns and look at all the houses.

These are some of the beauties that we saw.

Historic Edenton just happened to have a street festival going on down by the waterfront when we got there.

We toured The Cupola House and Gardens.

Two arial photos from the cupola.

We had lunch at a coffee shop on Broad Street.

Being near the water just makes me happy ~ I love the coast.

Even though it was 98 degrees that day, hot and humid, it was still enjoyable.

I feel fortunate that we live close enough to the coast and close enough to the mountains that we can visit both.

Enjoyed the tour. I especially loved the big fish painted on the old window on the cute small cottage! I enjoy looking at the homes when we visit towns with historic areas,too!

Hi Donna
Edenton looks like a beautiful town. Aren't the houses grand? I'm having a porch party tomorow. I hope you can stop by for a visit.
Hugs, Rhondi
