Nice sidetrip from Beaufort. These historic remains are a nice place to wander. You can picture the original church and appreciate the handiwork of the builders. Take bug spray and wear sunscreen

Allegedly haunted, the Chapel of Ease definitely has an aura about it. That entire stretch of road is allegedly haunted. There's a "hanging tree" right near the chapel. And little known Fort Fremont ruins at Land's End. Penn Center is the first recognized (and still...More
