Saturday, June 2 – This, of course, is where the Civil War began. Our overall assessment of the voyage: Great ferry ride. Fantastic views of Charleston, the Ravenel Bridge and an aircraft carrier. Very informed tour guide at the fort. Good value for the money. Even made friends on the ferry. All that + beautiful day = Definitely worth it.
We had such good seats on the top deck. We - along with everyone around us - wanted to claim “same seats” for the ride back. So, in the spirit of looking out for the team, which included a couple from Montgomery, AL on one side and a multigenerational extended family on the other, Sandy high-tailed it back to the ferry to save seats for everyone as most of the people were still taking their time in the fort.
As we were on our way back to Charleston from the fort, a “tall ship” on a cruise of the harbor also appeared. Very appropriate.
