yes. how awesome is it to hang in a boat with family and friends and chill on a beautiful river or lake? the answer of course, is so awesome.

Funny, this. I hate Texas beaches (1 hour from Galveston and can't be bothered), but put me in Mexico and I'll take the sun and sand all day long.

Exactly. My family is from Charleston, and I grew up on boats. Love boats, love sailing, love the ocean... But sitting on a beach drives me nuts. It's hot, sandy, and there's nothing to do. I can be convinced to do a natural, empty beach--think St Johns, where most of the beaches are National Park land so there is no development on them--but "normal" beaches a la Florida, GA, SC, etc I have zero desire to do.

My wife and her family wanted to go to the beach last summer. I agreed, but on the condition that it be at one of the beaches near Charleston so I could borrow a family members' boat and have something to do all day. It worked out pretty well for everyone involved.

Some of the best memories I have from my often-tumultuous relationship with my dad have to do with boats, so it's something that has a very strong positive connotation for me. I will say, however, that saltwater > freshwater, though I'm not one to complain when I can feel water rolling beneath my feet.

I used to love it when we'd take the boat to a dockside bar and restaurant and my dad would convince them to sell me booze despite the fact that I'd "forgotten" my ID.

Man, now I'm doing some hard core reminiscing about some great times with my old man.

I will say that I'm more inclined to go to the beach when I'm vacation than I was when I was just a few miles from the beach, but I still strongly prefer overlooking the water from a non-sand location. In a perfect world, my down time would include a tiki bar overlooking a beach where I could watch my wife and child enjoy the sun and sand until we decided it was time to motor away in our cruiser.

This post makes me want to go to Charleston. I've never been, but people have told me I have to visit, given I love Savannah.

Those beaches aren't great, especially if you've been to Florida, but there are some great places to fish in the Texas gulf area. I'm pretty fond of Port Aransas: scuzzy and cheap.

Charleston is a beautiful city, but is overrun by tourists, moreso than Savannah. Large swaths of downtown Charleston are like Disneyworld at this point. My family has been in the city since it was founded, but most of them have moved out of downtown as it's become just impossible to live in. It is beautiful though, and similar to Savannah in many ways.

If you love Savannah, you should definitely check it out. Everyone I know who isn't from there loves visiting, and I admittedly have a somewhat different view of the city than most do smile.gif

No joke. On the other hand, its existence makes it far more likely that I'll get to keep my job when I come up for review in a few years. So there's that.

Congrats man.

Yes, plan a trip to Charleston, it's a wonderful place. I haven't been in lots of years but plan to visit both Charleston and Savannah in late May. Really excited about getting back to those parts.

Voxsartoria gave me a good recipe I will try to cook together tonight. I will also eat steaks and drink wine. Hard day at work.

One of the best trips my wife and I have ever taken was a visit to Charleston during Spoleto. We ate really, really well, saw tons of great music and dance performances, had a great experience on a gullah tour, checked out a couple of the sea islands and Fort Sumter...just a fantastic time.

The only time I've been to Charleston was during Spoleto many, many years ago, and had such a good time that I thought it was time to return. I'll be there this year after I spend a few days in Savannah.
