its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 12 - Charleston, SC

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."―Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our time in Charleston is quickly coming to an end. We've been enjoying this beautiful city and some wonderful spring weather...finally. Charleston is a great city to explore on bikes when the weather is pretty and we definitely love to spend time here. Besides exploring the city we've spent time visiting with old friends and making a few new ones and eating some great food. Stan has finished installing our new batteries and inverter, rigged a new system on the dinghy to carry our bikes, installed a couple of new electrical breakers, cleaned and waxed the haul and completed a few other minor projects. There's always something to keep him busy. I haven't been quite as productive, but I have gotten the boat provisioned and the cabin cleaned and in good shape for the coming season. I have also stayed busy with yoga classes, shopping, coffee with friends and every day chores that have to be done...no matter where you live. 

We are renting a car next Monday to shuttle our car to Ortega Yacht Club near Jacksonville, Florida. We will drive down and back in one day and be ready to leave Charleston on Tuesday or Wednesday…depending on weather. It's been three years since we've been south of Charleston, so our plan is to move south slowly, revisiting some of our favorite places. As usual with cruising the details all depends on the weather.

The beautiful sunrise Sunday morning...I only got to see this because of the time change!
On the second Sunday of the month King Street is closed to traffic, so people can shop, eat and enjoy the day. 
Everyone was enjoying the day...even the dogs! 
Sites around town on a wonderful spring day.
