North Carolina Marintime museum
I had a couple of hours to visit the Maritime Museum in Beaufort at the south end of the Outer Banks while transiting through on a sail boat earlier this week. Its a wonderful small museum which is augmented by a traditional wood boat building workshop.
One of the benefits of sketching is that if you ask, you can often get in past where the public are allowed and engage staff in conversation about what they are doing. It was about 90 degrees F that afternoon, but the offshore breeze was moving through in the shade of the workshop made it quite comfortable.
