And Y’all…
It’s prunanced “BOWfut”.

Only in the south…
the one down the road apiece in SC is pronounced as it is spelled.

Maybe they pronounce them different so that you won’t confuse one with the other.

Beaufort County Paddle Trails
Is the Beaufort County (NC) Canoe/Kayak Paddle Trail Guide and Atlas on sale at any local Washington, NC book stores or other retail outlets? How does the guide compare to the paddle trail guides for other nearby counties (Carteret & Pamlico) that are free?

Thanks. dave

Availability of Map
Available from the Pamlico-Tar River Foundation Office which is located across the street from Bill’s Hot Dogs on Gladden Street.

It a very good map book but then too I may be prejudiced since I installed the access signs and am in the process of installing mile markers on some of the longer paddling venues.

Safe stay on the water
