Growing up here in Beaufort for me was adventurous, exciting, and full of fun. Although we didn’t have many of the things that we have today, we never seemed to have a dull moment. We were very creative when it came to games. When we weren’t playing games, we would visit the museum where many historic items could be viewed. We also visited downtown Beaufort where gun battles took place. Fuel was so much cheaper than it is today. The cost of food and the quantity was so much cheaper then and you got more for your money. The toys were made from a better quality material, as well as cars.
