Remembrance Day in Canada, Veterans day in the USA. We are missing the ceremonies at the cenotaph back home. Thankful for those who fought for our freedom. Thankful for my Dad who made it home safely from the horrors of war and saddened for the families of the men and women who were not that fortunate. So many lives lost at such a young age. Feeling greatfull today. “May we never forget”.
Very windy this morning and the current is so swift and strong here. We are lucky though as according to Active Captain, there are 2 wrecks in here. We were up early and showered and blogged and then dingied over to amazing Grace to visit. With the tide lower, we could see a mast sticking up from one of the wrecks that is mentioned in Active Captain. Apparently there are 2 of them in here. We have noticed 2 derelict boats in here. Looks like the owners just walked away from them.
After awhile we dingy over to the dock and look for a restaurant for brunch. Two locals recommended the one right by the marina. It was a great choice, called Salty Mike’s. Very good home cookin’. They even had alligator, although none of us were brave enough to try it. When we went back out, Esther noticed this sign on the side door. This was our first time seeing a sign like that. Then we all piled in the van and headed across the bridge to Walmart. And on our way back, we got a shot of Persuasion from the bridge.
I will add a few photos that were taken when we were coming in to Charleston yesterday. It is a city that we would like to explore again. I would love to see the plantations that were in the North and South mini series. Maybe when we get our RV, Esther. 😉
Today we travelled 16.6 nm.
