“Monday April 18 – anchor up by 9am tried to get the 9:30 am opening of the Wappoo Creek Hwy 171 Bridge. The current was bit too strong to make it so we slowed down and waited for the 10:30am opening.
Arrived in Charleston Monday late morning greeted by Max and Dylan who ran down the dock to greet us! Also there our daughter Beth her husband Kevin. Along with them Kevin’s parents Pam and Ernie who live here. We stayed at their beautiful house with All, while we were here.
40 days to go.
Saturday April 23 – we departed the Illg house mid morning, with all escorting us to Trance. It was a happy goodbye knowing we’ll see them in about three weeks! As they were departing new friends were coming. Our sister in-laws sister Sherri and her friends Sandy and Bob.
The Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina, where our boat is, has a free shuttle to downtown Charleston for hotel and marina guests. For dinner we rode in but asked to be dropped off a bit early of the designated stop. We walked to D’Allesandro’s Pizza on St. Philip Street. In December of 2019, we stopped in Charleston on our way south. Ben D’Allesandro is a friend of our son Luke, who used to live here, delivered pizza to our boat back then. We returned for more!
35 days to go.”
