MFO has a obligation at the Historical Society this morning, and then we'll put "stuff" in the MOMSTER and point south.
Not going all the way today, so will arrive our departure city of Charleston on Thursday. Then we board our ship on Saturday for an American Cruise Line tour with the Cole Travel folk and eventually arrive near Jacksonville, FL on the following Saturday. Our route is roughly Charleston to Beaufort; Savannah (Hilton Head); Jekyll Island; Sapelo Island; St. Simons Island; Fernandina Beach/Jax.
While we're traveling though the mecca of Low Country cuisine, the feeder is somewhat perplexed. Thursday night we'll be "on our own" in Charleston. I am not sure if we'll attempt a dinner there, it seems sacrilege not to, but there is a bewildering number of restaurants (Husk, Magnolia, SNOB, etc., etc.) and choosing one is tough (or easy, depending on your point of view).
On the boat, those of you familiar with these types of cruises know there are always "optional" tours in some of the ports. For instance, in Jekyll Island we'll have the chance ($) to go on a Shrimp Day boat.. All of this kind of makes the schedule uncertain as to.......food. Lunch maybe. Of course dinner is always served on the ship, but I suspect with a bit of coordination (and $$) one can blow those off and dine ashore. Savannah offers that opportunity and there's a big boy restaurant there (The Gray) that we might visit. TBT I am still suffering from a bit of unsteadiness, and I'm not sure how that will affect what we/I can do.
Anyway, there should be wi-fi on board so hope to be able to take you along with us occasionally..
Notice in the photo that led off there's a garment bag, which contains the duds to be
