From Myrtle Beach, our next major stop was Charleston where we planned to spend 2 nights so we'd get a full day to explore the city, and it sure was worth it.
The mid-way point traveling from Myrtle Beach was Georgetown, SC. It looked like a nice place, but after a week in Myrtle Beach for Laurie and several days in Ft Lauderdale for me, anchoring out is a remote place was high on both our lists. We continued a bit south of Georgetown and anchored in the North Santee River for a quiet evening.
The next day we continued on arriving at Charleston early afternoon. The most popular marina appears to be over on the west side of town (Charleston is a north-south peninsula), but when I called they didn't have any room for us, so we ended up at another place over on the east side of town. Well, it was quite fortuitous after all. The whole downtown area of Charleston is on the East side just a couple of blocks from the marina, and what a great city it is. I know this isn't news to many people, but it was our visit and Charleston definitely lived up to it's reputation.
