It was crazy humid in Charleston, but luckily we spent a good part of the day on the bay. It was a 30 minute boat ride out to Fort Sumter, where we had an hour to explore.

The ranger gave a great talk about the start for the Civil War, which began with the attack of Fort Sumter. They had a nice museum in the fort as well. I wish we could have stayed much longer than the allowed hour.

Back on shore, we spent an hour in the museum reading about the history leading up to the Civil War. Then we headed to Charleston’s French Quarter, where we wandered around the old town in unbearable heat and humidity.
