its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 13 - Sight Seeing

Ashley Marina (Charleston)

Today was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine. Stan put another coat of Cetol on the teak on the flybridge and then we decided to take the rest of the day off.  We drove over to Johns Island to see the Angle Oak. The Angel Oak Tree has come to symbolize Charleston. It's a southern live oak estimated to be in excess of 1500 years old, stands 66.5 ft. tall,measures 28 ft. in circumference, and produces shade that covers 17,200 square feet. From tip to tip its longest branch distance is 187 ft.

We then drove to Folly Beach; a cute little beach town located about ten miles south of Charleston. We enjoyed walking on the beach, visiting with a few locals and wandering through the basic beach shops. The main drag is full of unique looking restaurants, pubs and shops.
