MM 464.5, Charleston City Marina

The morning brought us beautiful blue skies, and sunshine but there was still some wind which lasted most of the day.  We cleaned out the garage (that is what we call the storage bunk) which took most of the morning. Then we had lunch and met our new neighbors; people come and go, a number of boats are leaving tomorrow. It is wonderful running into everyone again.

We are waiting for Terry and Jim to arrive for Thanksgiving; we will be doing boat work and some touring until next Wed when they arrive. This afternoon we went into town because I needed some meds, went to CVS and walked around for a while and called the van to pick us up,  It turned cold before we left town-- the good news is I took a jacket; it is supposed to be 40 tonight. 

John is hooking up our TV; we know nothing about the outside world, except what John reports from the internet about the Market.  It will be good to see something besides charts and places to anchor (not that that has ended but just for now.)

John said, today he misses being on the go.  I am feeling somewhat the same way, but it is good catching up on chores. I need to clean the Teak, and repair some canvas; can’t believe we left Annapolis only 18 days ago.

We have company from Annapolis coming tomorrow--stay tuned to find out who came to see us!  Tonight’s dinner was left-over spaghetti, salad and some great bread I found at Harris Teeters; we did finish off  the last molasses cookie in the tin, they were very good.

    Hey, Guys! Congratulations on making Charleston (one of our favorite stops). Please stop at Beaufort (SC) which is our most favorite place!

    Based on another friend's blog, you may have been in the same area as "Onward", a 49' Catalina. His name is Joe Rocchio (retired Dept of the Army head scientist).

    Could your mystery guest be Mark Cline? He left left after you on his Cape Dory 28, 'Brandywine' I think he is alone.
