05 November 2017 | Charleston and Hilton Head
Calm, foggy, windy, rainy, you name it
Realized our forward running lights were out on the way to Charleston, another item to put on the fixed list. Arrived in Charleston early today and got a nice slip on the inside slips of the City Marina. We fueled up first. Took a nice walk into Charlestown and had some fantastic shrimp and grits. It's my new favorite. Dinner by the marina was marginal. We called it early to get some needed sleep.
Took a nice walk in the Morning. Had a great lunch at a local Charlestown restaurant. We walked over 10 miles around Charleston. So many cool shops and nice buildings.
Had a nice breakfast at the marina restaurant. Got laundry done. Took one last walk into Charleston and departed mid afternoon on the outside to Hilton Head. We wanted to take advantage of good calm stable weather, although I could stay at Charleston many more days.
Arrived at the northern end of Hilton Head at about 1 in the morning. Finisterre did well we anchored in the sound for the night.
Running lights worked well. It was an absolutely beautiful night on the ocean. It was like a lake most of the way. We arrived at the Shelter Cove Marina about 1pm and docked behind this beautiful 117 foot mega yacht call Christina B. We washed the boat to get all the salt off. We went to the happy hour and watched football. It's the best happy hour ever the food is really good and cheap. A sailors dream. We met a nice couple who were army brats. We talked about the army brat life.
Biked around Hilton Head. We got some bike helmets and went to Church. Had a nice breakfast after Church. Chilled out the rest of the day and enjoyed the extra hour of the time change. We met the owners of the Christina B, they were nice and owned the restaurants that we like the happy hour at. They were in the progress of decorating their boat for Christmas. We hit the happy hour again and watched football. They also had the red zone on one set so we didn't miss any big plays.
