We arrived at a marina with the grand name of the Harborage at Ashley River at about 1300. It is just past a 56 foot bridge and much deliberation as to whether to stay here by the skipper who wanted to sail the next day on the last of the flood. Tied up without much problem but am beginning to think it may be best to pull the anchor out of the bow roller when docking at unfamiliar places.
Exploring Old Charleston we saw mny beautiful old buildings. Most of the businesses are realtors, lawyers and art galleries with a good number of rather expensive restaurants. It was not very warm walking around the sea front. After a long walk ahore exploring the old area of Charleston we finished with a decent meal at the Noisy Oyster. We both felt tired on returning aboard after the long walk. (crew noted this was least expensive restaurant we saw)
Skipper researched mast height yet again and decided that it is nominally 51 feet - not 53 feet. Determined we could get under bridge even at high water spring tide. however than found that next low bridge did not start opening until after 0900 so it was academic.
