"Look beyond the seafood and the boats" Beaufort by etfromnc

Beaufort Travel Guide: 45 reviews and 99 photos

While I was a college student, I spent half of one summer in Carteret County doing community development work (Had I only known that I was supposed to go on and become president afterward?) We dug wells, built athletic fields, taught adult literacy, distributed USDA surplus foods, et al. The work, the camaraderie which our team built, somewhat in the face of community opposition (including the first death threat which I ever received), made that summer the most formative summer of my then young life and, even with many summers added since, I still consider it one of the most significant summers of my entire life. We worked hard and faced sincere, and often malevolent, opposition but we also matured away from the pressure.
