Departing Charleston

We departed Charleston, you guessed it, early one morning.

We went up the river first for a look at the suspension bridge and the carrier USS Yorktown before heading back down the river and then turning off and entering the ICW.

At the entrance to Charleston Harbour is Fort Sumter. It was the Confederate State’s attack on the Fort’s federal garrison that started the US civil war.
