Yesterday we drove over to Beaufort to catch a glimpse of the cannon that was raised from Beaufort Inlet. The theory is that it is from the Queen Anne's Revenge, Blackbeard's ship, which was lost in 1718.

There's more info at the Queen Anne's Revenge site (broken link).

It's been an interesting week on the coast from Jackie Gore, the father of Beach Music, at the Mullet Festival to a cannon which has been on the sea floor for almost 300 years.

Thanks Dave, Good pictures as always. I have been following the story of the cannon in several news papers and have done some reading on Blackbeard.
I also enjoyed the link to the Jackie Gore site. My bride and I want to take shag lessons when we move to New Bern in 2 - 3 years.

Thanks again for all your great postings.
