This past weekend, I ended up on the river in Beaufort, SC with two girlfriends. A historical city situated within the ACE basin, surrounded by tidal creeks and natural wonders. While most lowcountry marshes breed only mosquitoes...the marshes around Beaufort produced beautiful homes and the characters that inhabit them.
A setting Hollywood cannot reproduce...confirmed by its staring role in many books and movies. The Water is Wide, The Great Santini, The Prince of Tides...all written by native son Pat Conroy, as well as, the filming of the classic The Big Chill.

Back on land, the marsh green continued...in the paint throughout the innovative grocery Lowcountry Produce. Selling products billed as "handmade and handpicked'
In Beaufort we found the recipe for a great girls' weekend...a beautiful setting, shopping (our baskets below), good food, a good night's sleep (all three of us busy Moms) and lots of laughter
