Charleston

I’m sure soon we’ll find the warm sunny weather. This past week has been a little dreary, cloudy and rainy with lows in the upper 30’s and highs in the upper 50’s. We sure love our cockpit enclosure and engine heater keeping it in the 60s or more!  In spite of the weather we’ve had some great days exploring and meeting up with several fellow snowbirds we’ve met along the way.  A 12 mile side trip up the winding Cypress swamp of the Waccamaw River to Conway, SC turned out to be a delightful find.  We love to explore historic towns and Conway has kept much of its old southern charm including careful restorations.  We spent all afternoon on their historic home walking tour and a stroll along their river walk. This afternoon we, once again, enjoyed the charm of Charleston’s stately homes and gardens on a 2 hour walk topped off with a dinghy ride through the harbor and Ripley Light Yacht Club where we spent time last fall. Now we’re looking forward to the more open waters of SC and Georgia where we may be able to turn off the engine and enjoy   the peace of traveling by sail.

  1. Sounds great Ron, I really enjoy reading about your adventures. It doesn’t seem like you are sad at all about missing the up coming ski season here in the northeast. I’ll be sure to lay a couple tracks down for you while you are enjoying the warm sun and seas.

  2. Your photos are absolutely beautiful! I especially enjoyed taking a walk down memory lane through ME via your perspective. It was great fun meeting you both at St. Marys, hope to see you again soon!
