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

Feb. 5 - Back in Charleston

Ashley Marina

We thought some of driving straight from our home in Texas to the boat, which is 19 hours, but decided we'd be useless today if we did. There's always so much to do when we get back, so we stopped in Tallahassee last night, had a nice dinner and got a good nights rest. We got to Charleston at 12:30 today...after greeting our friends and checking the boat out, we got busy unloading the car. It's amazing we actually have room for so much stuff on this boat. While I put everything away in the cabin, Stan took care of putting up the bimini, opening sea cocks, and stowing things on the flybridge. By 4:30 we were feeling and looking more like home.

Since there was no time to go to the grocery store today...we HAD to eat out! Our friends, Pam and Donny, have spent the last three winters in Charleston and know all the great places and good deals, so we joined them at the Oak Steakhouse for happy hour and some of the best hamburgers in town. We had a great time catching up on what each of us has been doing for the last four months. It feels nice to be onboard.
