Beaufort is a beautiful old seaport town with a lot of heritage. Its history shows it was one of the richest towns in America, then the Poorest town in America, and now since 1938 has been a growing thriving old town, again on the rise and very prosperous.
The old two story houses with porches up and down. Live oaks, Palms and Palmettos fill the open areas.
One of the nicest things about this water front park are these swings facing the bay. There must be 30 of them. Each one help up by two Ivey covered pilings. Neatly trimmed and it gives privacy from the swing next door. They are comfortable and very relaxing.
Behind the swings are shops and eateries.
The bridge to Ladies Island and on to Helena Island.

I had to shoot this Yellow dude, (is this a Hibiscus?) as we walked to the car.
I did learn that the little town of Yemassee was named for the Yemassee Indians, who left this area (too many white men) and joined the Seminoles in Florida.
