SOUTHERN CHARM (& HUMIDITY)
Courage arrived in Charleston on Thursday and planned a four day stay. Captain George and First Mate Jerry took advantage of this stop to clean and preform necessary maintenance. They even did laundry! They toured Charleston, hitting the Market District and sampling great food. The hush puppies at Fleet Landing were unbelievable. They also tried authentic South Carolina BBQ. Charleston is kknown for its rich history, well-preserved architecture, distinguished restaurants, and mannerly people.
There was a crew change on Saturday. Jerry jetted back to Virginia and Kris arrived from home bringing presents for Admiral Arrrrrchie and Captain George. Michael Richmond loaded 1800 songs onto a Walkman for George and the Admiral got a new hat! George is in music heaven. As you can imagine Archie loved his hat! We dined at Slightly North of Broad (SNOB) and explored downtown Charleston.
George made friends with Elliot, one of the dockhands at the marina. Elliot is a history major and agreed to take us on a private guided tour. We headed out Sunday morning for a walking tour of Charleston. We weren’t disappointed. Historic Charleston is bursting with Southern charm and hospitality. The city feels a bit like it’s suspended in time, thanks to its antebellum architecture amazing old Charleston style houses and mansions.
We head to Beaufort, SC Monday morning.
