Charleston Maritime Center - Hyman's and Apple Store

Rosie Phillips has a great art exhibit at a local gallery, nicely done
The art gallery is Studio 151
I had a 10:00 am an appointment with the Apple Genius Bar concerning the inability of my iPad Pro to maintain a GPS fix. My older iPad Air 2 worked fine, it was the newer iPad Pro that had the problem. After some research by the tech, it turned out that they knew about the problem was in the process of implementing a fix. I was offered a replacement iPad Pro but I'll wait until I know the gps chip has been replaced in the new unit.

How many restaurants have you been to where one of the owners comes by each and every table to thank the patrons?
At Hyman's, they do that every day.
That was progress of a sort I guess. We then headed to Hyman's Seafood for lunch which is would always recommend to visiting boaters. Sure, it's touristy but so what, it's good food at a reasonable price. I knew the regular meals were gargantuan so we just ordered appetizers. one of their signature Shrimp and Grits and one of their crab cakes. It was plenty for us for lunch. I liked the boiled peanuts served on every table and don't miss the hush puppies.

Each table has a plaque at each position
One of the reasons we like this marina is the closeness of downtown. It's only three blocks away and even closer is a Harris Teeter and a Hardware store which had the 15W-40 diesel oil I needed for my genset oil change. In addition to the best selection of groceries on the east coast are two kiosks of Redbox movie rentals. They are much cheaper than streaming a movie ($1.80 vs $5 or $6) and the DVDs can be easily returned since the grocery store is so close by.

The walls are lined with photos like these
Tuesday is a day to provision and do laundry in preparation for a Wednesday departure to Isle of Palms. We will hit the shallows with a 3 ft falling tide. Not the best situation but good enough, we think.

I am so glad you had a chance to go by the gallery! Thank you for the post! We can’t wait to see how the rest of your trip goes. We are hoping to head to the Bahamas this weekend.
Safe Travels! Rosie Phillips
