Looking Over Gallant’s Channel


Gallant’s Channel is the strip of water that essentially forms Beaufort’s western border.

If you’ve ever driven into town from the west, you’ve driven right over it, and if you’ve ever stayed a few nights at the Beaufort Inn, you have likely gotten to know Gallant’s Channel well.

As the shot above shows, the sunsets looking west over the Channel can be dramatic. This one was taken from a rocking chair on the balcony of one of the Beaufort Inn’s water-facing rooms.

Not a bad place to catch a sunset, is it?

We’ll limit our comments here and let the Channel speak for itself:
