A lazy day to Charleston

22 December 2011 | Charleston, SC
Linda / Warmer, calm seas
The most critical piece of this day's trip was to make the Ben Sawyer bridge by 4pm. It closes from 4 to 6, and missing an opening meant spending the night in Isle of Palms or arriving in Charleston Harbor after dark . We called the bridge at 3:30, requesting an opening and got through it and to City Marina by 4:30 pm!
The day was spent dodging shallow spots on the waterway and watching dolphins leap out of the water, alligators sunning themselves on the mudflats, and several types of birds catching fish. The terrain changed markedly going from scrub to forest to grassy beaches. It was beautiful!
Tasha did what she does best, stretch out and relax.
We changed latitudes on this journey to Charleston, moving from 39 degrees N to 32 degrees N and that really makes a difference in weather!
The day was great. We will be sailing around the Charleston area during January and then plan to head South.
