It was a very nice day on Lake Murray and we had no set plans other than to visit and do what came along. After June served up a great breakfast that included her unbeatable carrot cake along with other delectable items she and Vicki headed off to a meeting she had to go to and then, if I understand correctly, they went “shopping”. Arthur and I sat around and talked, worked on charging the battery of his BMW convertible sports car and then that of their boat. While eventually successful with the BMW we had no success with the boat as the battery charger was not functioning properly and would not deliver a charge to the boat battery.
We went into Lexington for dinner, more shrimp and grits before calling it at day.
On Thursday we had another leisurely morning with more good breakfast and then we toured the city of Columbia, South Carolina’ state capitol and home of much history. The church they attend there is a Southern Baptist Church in which the proclamation of the south to secede from the union was signed in 1860.
Arthur and June took us back to Charleston where we found the boat bouncing like crazy at the marina slip. The bouncing was so constant that I doubt it was boat wakes. It continued in this way throughout the afternoon, evening and on into the night. There must be something connected with the tide and wind that causes this very uncomfortable action.
