We have been history hopping for the past week:).
Last Thursday we attended a gathering at the newly rennovated Masonic Lodge.
The building is from the early 1890's and had fallen into terrible disrepair.
It was being held up by wooden poles!
As you can see after several years of work the building is once again in use.
As part of the rennovation all of the original features inside were kept.
On Friday night we were the greeters for the third and final part of a historic lecture series celebrating Beaufort's tricentennial.
Darryl and our good friend, Louise, outside of the church.
Darryl and I greet guests attending the lecture which on this night was about the Civil War.
Guests were even greeted by soldiers, both Confederate and Union.
St. Helena Episcipal Church was founded in 1712, the building was constructed in 1724.
It continues to be an active congregation to this day.
On Saturday we were off to Seabrook Island for the Jane Austen Society luncheon.
The tables were set for a delicious meal of grilled salmon over couscous with chocolate pecan pie for dessert.
My Mr. Darcy enjoying the view.
I portrayed Jane Austen and hubby was Mr. Darcy:).
Later that evening we attended a party honoring the famous Scottish poet,
After feasting on Scottish fare and visiting with friends, several people read their favorite Robert Burns poems.
Of course, all of this time travel has worn me out.
I think I'll take a hint from Kramer and catch a quick cat nap:).
