Walk on the Bridge

This evening we went for a walk on the Ravenel Bridge. There are walking paths all the way across so that you can walk from Mount Pleasant into downtown Charleston.
I took my camera with me. David said he was going to walk behind me so no one would know we were together. I guess I must have looked like a tourist. Of course this was the first time that I had been on the bridge. David, Haley and Holden were able to go on the bridge before it even opened thanks to my brother-in-law who is a highway patrolman.
I am glad that I took my camera because I got some great pictures. Here are some of the pictures I took.
This one is of the sun setting over the Charleston Port.
This is a picture of the cables. It is incredible how big they are.
This is the USS Yorktown at Patriot's Point. The aircraft carrier is permanently docked and serves as a museum.
I was taking a picture of the kids at the top of the bridge when a nice lady stopped and asked if we wanted her to take a family picture. I figured why not (by the way, the camera adds 10 pounds).
This is a picture of downtown Charleston as seen from the top of the bridge.
This was a nice way to end the day. I think I might start walking the bridge twice a week. It was actually very therapeutic. Plus, I could use the exercise.
