They were building that bridge over the harbor when we were visiting in South Carolina. We drove over the OLD bridge then and it was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life. We took a harbor tour and I have several pictures of the new bridge being constructed. I'm very proud that I could identify a landmark that wasn't in California!I learned also that Fort Sumter was located on the water. I never, ever knew that. I guess I didn't listen too well when we learned about the war of "northern aggression."
NMOAC, we toured Fort Sumter today. I'd love to get a picture of that bridge at night. It's all lit up!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Charleston, although we didn't have time for the Fort Sumter tour. I bought a few baskets, a couple from the market and one on the road. They are beautiful. I would love to go back to see more of Charleston.
The Ravenel Bridge! Isn't it beautiful? My sister used to live in Summerville (north of Charleston) and my family still vacations at Folly Beach. If you are still in the area, drive out Folly Road until you get to the beach -- it's called The Edge of America -- and eat at Locklear's on the pier. I'm jealous, Rosie. You are in my favorite place to be.
Vera, it is indeed a beautiful bridge.Too late for us for Locklear's on the pier though. We're in Savannah now.I'll put it on my to-eat list. Thanks.
