Blackbeard was a real pirate, and his ship Queen Anne's Revenge was found off the coast of North Carolina in Archaeologists have recovered more than a dozen cannons from the wreckage, along with gun flints, shackles, and other pirate artifacts.
Beaufort, North Carolina - named the "coolest small town in America" by Budget Travel this year. This is Front Street. If you were taking this picture, the waterfront would be on your left. Great place for walking, as well as shopping & dining.
