Timing was good! Met friends in Charleston.

Sailing involves waiting, especially for good wind. The wind was awesome sailing down to Charleston but cold weather tortured us. Even worse, the sky was gray all day with no sunshine to warm us up. If you factored in the wind chill, it was 20 something Fahrenheit at sea the whole time we were sailing for 50 nautical miles from dawn to dusk. Having this experience, we decided to skip our next stop, Beaufort, South Carolina and go to Florida sooner.

Charleston brought me some more history lessons. The old city is well preserved with few gift shops, bars, restaurants, and etc., but history itself is defined with the old homes. With this journey, I found that the east coast of both Carolinas presents lots of history. It is easy to find houses and churches built in 17th century. I consider those to be relatively Stone Age buildings in the U.S

I got a wonderful present in Charleston! When we arrived at Charleston, longtime friends, Karen and Mike were visiting Charleston from Costa Rica for a wedding. We used to take Spanish language classes together in Fort Lauderdale. Back then, they were getting ready to retire and were building a house in Costa Rica. After retirement, they live with an ocean of dreams in Costa Rica.
