its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

April 24 - Charleston, SC

Ashley Marina

The weather finally looks nice today. It's hard to believe it's the end of April and we're in the south...we still have our heater on! The weather all over the county is crazy this year...winter just doesn't want to go away. We're glad we made the choice to stay here until the middle of May. The weather north of here is just too chilly for us. Ashley Marina is getting busy though with other boats heading north. We had new friends on Old Spice leave yesterday morning, they are starting the Great Loop, and old friends on Amici arrived in the afternoon. It's always fun to catch up with old friends. They shared their thoughts on the Bahamas and gave us advice on where to go in New England.

No cold weather, no gale force winds and plenty of sunshine…today is going to be a day to ride bikes and explore more of Charleston.

A few days ago the wind was 25-30 mph...I guess this sailboats anchor didn't hold.
