Re: A family day... what do sailors do?

Our son was sailing at 3 months old. Car seat sitting in the cabin floor. The Older he got was teathered to boat with lanyard and harness. We crabbed,fished,watched sunrise, sunset, approacing storm clouds. He is now 26 with his own sailboat. He has made two trips from Delaware to the bahamas and back, currently in the Bahamas. Show them all nature has to offer. However, not everyday will be paradise. Be patient.

Wow. Thanks folks. So many ideas. I saw a couple Charleston ideas as well. I am encouraged and probably need to look for a bigger boat. But to Charleston folks what are some preferred and weekend reachable destinations? Aren't there some barrier islands off the harbor? Where does one go to get off the boat for those beach walks? And at the risk of sounding wimpy what of shark and alligator reports that I hear? Urban legend?

Agreed. Consider this:

1 - You have food and drink
2 - You're on a boat

Start with those two and let the day unfold.
