Charleston Friends

Radeen and Captain Bill IP 380 Tamarack, our good friend from Rock Hall, MD
We enjoyed low country lunch alfresco at Amen Street on East Bay. Cheers!
Our days at Charleston South Carolina have drawn to a close, as our extended dockage stay ends today, Monday. We enjoyed our Rock Hall IP fleet buddies catchin up to us and they now have passed us as Captain Bill pushed on to Beaufort SC. While here, we enjoyed our time together with IP 31 Propromenon, IP 380 Blue Skies and IP 380 Tamarack and walks around town with these good friends.

Our next plan is to get to Florida ASAP and that was to include heading out the inlet today, but with high waves, 5-6 feet, and a building low pressure with 25 knot winds gusting to 30, we will move down to Beaufort SC and head to sea from there.

Here are a few more photos to our time in Charleston, SC

Beautiful restored Johnson's Row
And this is great wind for sailing south.....but...
The waves are building to 2-3 meters!
So, down the ICW to Beaufort, SC, that is pronounced Beauuuuuuu-Fort, SC, not to be confused with Beaufort, NC or Bowwwwwww-Fort.

Yep - those SC folks need to learn how to pronounce the name of their town correctly.
