What a beautiful, charming city! We squeaked under the 56 ft. Ashley River bridge at a very high tide and took a friend’s mooring ball off the Ashley River Marina. There is a safe walkway along the overpass that connects to the city marina or it is an easy dinghy ride there. We hadn’t been to Charleston since 1991, so it was fun to see the historic area again. Dinner and dominoes aboard Charmed with Blaine Parks IP40 Charbonneau made for another great IP evening. The next day found us at the Visitor’s Center, using our car to provision at a wonderful grocery called Harris Teeter and making dinner aboard for Janet Parks. The weatherman was right – a heavy fog blanketed harbor as we headed out the next morning. It lifted, as predicted, at 0900 as we approached the Ben Sawyer Memorial Bridge.
