Charleston SC

On Sunday 29/11 we passed through the Ben Sawyer Memorial bridge at the 1000 hour opening (with a bit of a sigh of relief as it is due to be closed for repair for 10 days in a couple of days time) and motored to Charleston past several dolphins and pelicans.
Moored at the smart Caroline Yacht Club as guests of Bill & Jacqueline form S/V Sea Swallow (old Kemerite friends whose yacht is in Croatia at the moment) just in front of Rhum Line. Had a very pleasant meal together on Dutch Link with the 6 of us reminiscing and catching up on news.

Charleston was where the Civil war started with the Confederates firing on the Unionist's fort on an island just offshore the town. It is a very interesting old town with many fine old buildings very well preserved.
