Charleston Harbor Cruise

18 Oct

Charleston, South Carolina is a three-hour drive from where we are currently living, Fayetteville, North Carolina. It is always exciting to discover this city and driving for hours doesn’t really seem to matter. It has been hubby’s “home” from 2000-2005 and it has become one of our favorites after our two visits since we got married.  There is so much this city can offer. We have been to the colorful and beautiful downtown Charleston and even tried one of their ghost tours, awed at the aquatic displays at South Carolina Aquarium, reconnected with the past in Magnolia Plantation, stalked some alligators at Audobon Swamp Garden, learned about war batteries at Fort Moultrie, met the Hunley at Charleston Museum, and said hello to Sullivan Island Lighthouse.  This time, we are geared to do the Charleston Harbor Cruise. It was an hour and a half tour showcasing the beauty of Charleston aboard the General Beauregard vessel. It was an entirely different way to appreciate the city and it surely was one of the most unforgettable.

I am inlove with Charleston, again. It didn’t come as a surprise.

    I love Charleston. It was the girl’s getaway destination for me and my friend Donna for many years. The market, the carriage rides, Rainbow Row! I’m not sure if I’ll get back to Charleston. Seeing your photos was a nice reminder.
