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

Feb. 22 - Charleston, SC

Ashley Marina

We're in a wet weather pattern. We get a few days of sunshine and then another front moves through with a few days of rain. We get out and do as much as we can when the weather permits. I love riding my bike around town, so I get out and explore when the weather is nice. We save running errands in the car for raining days, so we have an excuse to get off the boat. I rode my bike to the library on Thursday and checked out about half a dozen movies...I'm ready for the rain that is predicted for the weekend.

We had to move Pearlzday to Thursday since we knew Friday was going to be a soggy day...you have to have priorities you know! George and Maryann, on Old Spice, joined us and we all had a great time.

  1. These are some really great pictures! To me, Charleston is the classic image that everyone from the north, like me, has of the south. My husband and I recently looked into some real estate in Charleston, SC to see about buying a summer home. Or we may just decide to move down permanently. Do the people around take kindly to outsiders?

    1. Charleston is a wonderful place to live and the people here are very friendly and excepting of others. Lots of southern hospitality here. They will probably always think of you as a new coming, but they will be very friendly. It really is the typical southern place people think of when they think of the south.
