"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Feb. 15 - Pearlzday

Ashley Marina (Charleston)

I have a friend that lives in the "real world" that asks me every time we talk if I know what day it is. My response has always been...I didn't go to church today, so it must be Saturday! Now that we're in Charleston and our boat friends like to go to Pearlz on Friday...every day is Saturday except Friday, which is now Pearlzday. Just one of the difficulties of living on a boat! When there's work to be done you do it, when its time to play you play...it really doesn't matter what day the calendar says it is.

Before going to Pearlz, Pam and I went to The Citadel to watch the retreat parade, held every Friday afternoon. The Citadel is The Military College of South Carolina, a state-supported, comprehensive college located in Charleston, founded in 1842. We then rode our bikes 3 ½ miles to Pearlz, where we met the guys. We are definitely getting our exercise.
