MM 464.5 Charleston City Marina
Not moving today, doing boat work; always something to do on a boat. Today, I went shopping with Brenda--we hit all the cute shops on King Street. Since Brenda and Ray are here a few times a year to visit Patrick they know the lay of the land. It sure helps to have someone guide you around in a new city.
Brenda and I went shopping down town and we did lunch:
Charleston is a great old fashioned town, unharmed by Sherman’s Army during the Civil War. That was because it had fallen on hard times and there was not enough wealth here at that time. The Old City Market, a collection of sheds on Market Street between Meeting and East Bay Streets, was once an outdoor produce and fish market. Today it is a collections of restaurants shops and local produce and craft stands; this is where the baskets are sold by the descendants of former slaves.
