- 2020 Fall Voyage
On our way into Charleston at sunset, we enjoyed sunset dining in the cockpit followed by some impromptu musical performances by Charlotte and Sloane. Elyse was JWO bringing us into Charleston. She had Jack at the helm, and Maddie and Casey as lookouts and did an excellent job managing her crew and navigating us into our anchorage. We anchored up not far from Fort Sumter just before 2200.
At breakfast, there was much talk of ordering barbeque while in Charleston and Tyler contemplated his consumption strategy. At slack water, we hauled back the anchor and were underway for the dock at Patriots Point. Henry was at the helm as we came alongside at our final destination. We rounded out the day wrapping up schoolwork, had Jack's mac-and-cheese for dinner and played a rousing game of Dutch Blitz. Maddie came out ahead, narrowly defeating Charlotte and Tyler.
This morning at slack water, we moved to a better dock within the marina. The retired aircraft carrier Yorktown is off our stern, and Cold War era submarine is off our port bow. After many weeks on board, the students discovered the waffle maker. Henry is pressing waffles as I write this.
