We had a leisurely morning and then departed in the still cold and rainy weather. After seeing a few more of Beaufort's antebellum homes from the water, the landscape became remarkably pristine and undeveloped, and there are low lying marshland filling the gaps between the barrier islands. We cruised several hours without seeing towns or evidence of homes and human life.
