In my search heading northeast from last week’s North Carolina Thursdays that was in Wilmington, I saw Beaufort in Carteret County. Popped in my usual search paremeter – tourist attractions and came across the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort. It’s one of several North Carolina Maritime Museums in North Carolina – the others being in Hatteras and Southport. I will probably do the other maritime museums at a later date.
