its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our first full day in Charleston was beautiful. Spring has arrived...if only for the week! Stan worked on boat projects most of the day...although he did have a little time to enjoy the weather. I enjoy being back in Charleston, because Pam and I sit on the deck and have coffee together on nice days. A lazy start to the morning, but fun. This afternoon I rode my bike all over town soaking in all the great sites of Charleston. This evening we celebrated being back in town and the beginning of our cruising season by having dinner at Magnolia's. Still one of our favorite places to eat in Charleston and we weren't disappointed. The food was amazing. 

The Market is steeped in history and charm, and is a popular destination for all who visit Charleston and I never get tired of watching people there.
Waterfront Park off of East Bay offers beautiful views of the water, Mt. Pleasant and the Ravenel Bridge
