Oh, I am so behind. Today is Wed April 17 – now the 18th, and I only just got caught up to arriving in Charleston a week ago. The reason I’m behind is that we continue to make fun stops and enjoy what will be the last of warm, sunny weather… cuz guess what? Another cold front, pushing plenty of wind, rain and t-storms for fun – arrives late Friday. Figure we’ll be tucked away in a tall tree-lined creek for a couple of days and then I’ll get caught up.
On to Charleston: shopping of all kinds, eating and drinking at some terrific establishments, aquarium visit, laundry…you name it we did it during the three days. Rain and T-storm only at night; overall the weather was more accommodating than had been forecast. Our dock neighbors told us about a distillery they planned to visit with friends who had a car. Umm, that ran a tiny bell. Turns out it was Firefly who not only operate a distillery; they also own Firefly Resort right near Hope Town, Abaco. At the corner liquor store I settled on a 4-pack of Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade; not too sweet, serve over a handful of ice cubes, kick back and enjoy.
The most intriguing and interesting sight took place right outside the marina entrance in Charleston Harbor. These are cutting edge sailing-on-foils gizmos. Amazing to watch- yes a video would have been a good idea, but only have “stills”. Any idea what they are? Another cruiser said he’s seen them in Newport.
