Monday AM - The City Tour

The first of many bus rides
Military Museum diorama shows the Redcoats leaving Charleston
Back on the bus...let's go downtown
but first it's lunch time
fabulous view with Ft Sumter a bump on the horizon

Old Town is charming and quaint

Hold on...we're gonna eat there tomorrow
The Market Place...blocks and blocks of shops
Doc & Joan Ordiway enjoying a purchase
Jim & Mary Jacobs:  Will it fit OK?
Hank Grogan peruses while Wally Whitehurst purchases
Brent & Anne Horn find some upscale shopping
Where are we supposta go now?
Wally & Don Nigro relax while Peggy goes looking for more bargains
Don't want to miss the bus...



Monday Evening - The Dinner Cruise

We decided on the bigger boat in back
Gotta hurry...
...So you can wait in line
But the elegant meal and service was well worth it
We were parked next to the Yorktown...
...and hoped we didn't get swamped


Tuesday AM - Fort Sumter

Down to the sea...for a ship...
and once more, queue up...
Underway at last...a view of the city
He visited his brother flyers...
... but, the landlubbers sat inside
There she is...
The Ranger told how things got started...
but, defensive hardware wasn't much help
Delany's, Highland's, Flaniks at the Fort
307th Bubbas meet at Bubbas for lunch...
...and a beer or two...
Coolest place to await the bus


Wednesday AM - Patriot's Point

Another day, another tour...
to see the carrier Yorktown
The Chief of the Boat told us how not to get lost
My golly, this is a big place!...the hangar deck
Tim Timmons is right at home
Our briefing room never had easy chairs
Wally & Roger wonder if they used ATO
Looks like a runway obstruction...
R T "I used to be a swabbie" Boykin and cousin Logan Teachey, do the FOD Walk
...Go Falcons, Beat Navy!
Carrier escort?
Where's Leonard DiCaprio when you need him?
Most of us would never fit in the bunks on this thing
Bill Carrier & Yorktown Carrier
