Return to BellaLuna

 On September 4th we returned to Palm City, Florida where BellaLuna was moored for the month of August.  We had a great time at our niece Jennifer and her new husband Chad's wedding.

After spending a week in Florida preparing BellaLuna and ourselves we set sail for Annapolis.  We enjoyed a three day sail from Palm City to Charleston, South Carolina. 
Hamlin Sound
We arrived at Hamlin Sound.  Beautiful anchorage just off the Inter Coastal Waterway.  We anchored overnight then moved to Isle of Palm marina.

We have had an opportunity to tour the beautiful city of Charleston.  Three tours in three days.  Harbour and Fort Sumter Island tour.  Horse drawn carriage tour of old Charleston and Magnolia Plantation tour.

After spending two weeks in Charleston we picked up two crew (friends) from Antares yachts to sail Bellaluna to Annapolis for the annual Annapolis boat show.  Bellaluna will be the Antares in the boat show this year.  We had great weather sailing north and enjoyed the company of Jeff and Salwa.
