Charleston Harbor

May 12th I went to Charleston and did a circumnavigation of the harbor.  A great day of kayaking!  

From Remly Boat Launch

 

Image

 

the first stop is the USS Yorktown

Image

Image

Then the USS Laffy a WWII destroyer.  

 

Image

Then the submarine 

Image

On South to Shem Creek

 

Image

Then the bird sanctuary. You can see other kayakers out watching the birds.  Image

Fort Moultrie where some of the first shots of the Civil War were fired.

 

Image

The Atlantic is beyond the nose of the boat…

Image

 

Here we are crossing the mouth of the Harbor.

Image

To where we were going to eat lunch beyond the tourist boat on Morris Island.

 

Image

Then across to Fort Sumter

 

Image

For a short tour.  We had the fort all to ourselves.  

Image

Little ole me…

Image

 

Inside the fort.  Charleston in the background. Tour boat coming.  Soon the fort will be filled with people.  

Image

 

This is where one of our kayak group succumb to the sirens song of Fleet street landing bar and grill.  

Image

Past the Bounty…

Image

To Drum Island for a beer.

 

Image

 

Final crossing back to Remly’s point!  17.37 miles of kayaking.  Whew!  Under the bridge and to the right of the cranes.
