Here's a little something to keep her looking forward...



I think my abs look OK, I'm thinking of working on my shoulders a bit more. What do you think?

Sheesh, she's already got that in ME!

I'm looking for something she don't have.

This is the admiral speaking if we are talking physical culture, I do like what I have. We are a good match. I was looking for CULTURE although in a pinch a hardware store can entertain me as much as a museum.

Re: Sailing For Culture: Help Save my Cruising Dream

If you've not been to Charleston, SC it's a must. Architecture, history, food and music, all first class and all within walking distance of the waterfront. The weather there may not be balmy but it's got to be better than PHL.

Good Gravey...There's so much to see/do south of you as you head for Florida and potentially beyond, how many carrots (or perhaps Carat's?) does the woman need/want??

Regarding, living in Philidelphia, if I recall correctly, wasn't it W.C. Fields (then formerly of "Philly") that, when asked, in 1925, what epitaph he wanted engraved on on his gravestone he replied: "I'd rather be here than in Philidelphia!"?

N'uf said, No?

Bailey-Mathews National Shell Museum on Sanibel Island. Great sailing in the area too.

Was just at that museum last fall. Very Nice! And, there is a museum sponsored boat building shop across the street.

Re: Sailing For Culture: Help Save my Cruising Dream

.......
Try a different approach:
1) Day at the spa for the Admiral
2) a night at a good hotel with a hot shower
3) a great dinner out
4) Champagne
5) Roses

there, your cruising dream is saved!

I know the yacht rental in Washington NC, on the Pamlico provides a car, or at least has in the past? Does one near Beaufort do that?

Re: Sailing For Culture: Help Save my Cruising Dream

Hello,

I'd have suggested that you come to Tidewater Virginia but my minivan said it was -3 here yesterday morning (assuming Mr. Chrysler wouldn't lie to me).

There is much to see and do here in Hampton Roads though. Jamestown is wonderful for history as is Yorktown (opposite sides of the peninsula and on separate rivers). Norfolk has waterside and lots of fun things as does Portsmouth. The entire region is neat.

One hopes you warm us soon, regardless.

Kindest,

Sundae

Indeed, Marathon has it's own "Culture" same as most of Keys. Nice to hear of Sarasota. Maybe I'll finally find a place in Fl. I really like! Lived and worked in Boca Raton for 12yrs. and you are correct in saying I generalized because all I did was work,work, work with no time to explore the state. Thanks for input.

Re: Sailing For Culture: Help Save my Cruising Dream

Philadelphia??? You must be joking! Its got the Ben Franklin museum of applied Science! That a world best in interactive museums.

In fact America has a huge number of museums, art galleries and cultural activities. Most major towns have guided walking tours focussing on history.

Perhaps you people dont know about it all because you dont look at your own country like an international tourist would. First port of call after the port of call is the Tourist Office. I go in a plunder ever brochure, map and guide. Then sort out all the attractions and find out how to get to them without paying for some rip off tour.
Every old church has a grave yard brimming with history, ghosts and sign boards.

Plus theres a myriad of dusty, small museums to discover.

Re: Sailing For Culture: Help Save my Cruising Dream

Hpeer,
Your contributions to CF have always been thoughtful and intelligent. And your previous cruises indicate that you have a true sense of adventure. However, when your path to cruising relies on your ability to entertain your wife at all costs . . . you're on a fast track to disaster. Good luck in accomplishing your future plans and goals.

The maritime museum in beaufort no longer loans a car as far as I know. Still love that place, fond memories of the old car too.
