Beaufort, SC to Charleston, SC

Tuesday, May 27, 2008 Departed the dock at 9:00 AM. Again we had to wait for the higher tide for later cuts in our travel. T emperatures today are in the low 80s with SW winds 5-10. It is a very sunny day. The The Dawho River is a beautiful passage to travel by boat. The water just runs into marsh land.

Things To See and Do In Charleston Charleston is a city that fully represents southern style: beautiful church spires, open-air markets, horse drawn carriages, and many homes of grand designs, fronted by porticoes and verandas of course, ringed with stands of palmettos. We took the shuttle in to town and had drinks at the Pavilion level of the Market Pavilion Hotel. (http://www.marketpavilion.com/) The bar is on the pavilion level and allows you to see high above the beautiful town of Charleston. After a glass of wine we to to High Cotton for dinner. Both restaurants were suggested to us by a couple we met from Charleston and a few natives from Beaufort.(http://www.mavericksouthernkitchens.com/)
