Charleston, South Carolina

Victory Lap Week 3/8

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.

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!

Sunday April 22, boat project day, Dan fixed our “party lights” which had stopped working. Late afternoon we hung by the pool at the resort, then had a nice dinner at the Fish House restaurant.

  3. Hi Marleen and Dan, Just arrived in Fernando de Noronha and we decided to go to luxury Posada for 2 days and after 5 months on Icebear it is heaven! Zdenka and Jack are in Charleston too.They are officers in OCC and if you need our place, we are one block from the Ashley River, “south of Broad St.”Iy May be fun for OCC folks to get together. The address is 22 Savage St.Zdenka and Jack are returning to Maine from Florida and Zdenka is the editor of the OCC magazine. I will send you details of house if you would like to stay. Two couples would have plenty of room and very close to fine dining! C
