Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms

Today we left downtown Charleston to visit Sullivan's Island and the Isle of Palms. First, we had to cross the Ravenel Bridge over the Cooper River to Mt. Pleasant, SC. This bridge spans 13,200 feet. Fortunately, it did not have a steep grade.

We reached the Atlantic Ocean by lunch time. Some of our group opted to go for a short swim. We heard later that it was tough getting back into their bike shorts.

We had a group lunch at Coconut Joe's right by the beach.

We stopped at Fort Moultrie after lunch. This fortress played a key role in both the Revolutionary and Civil wars.

On the way back, we passed a restaurant called Poe's Tavern. We had to make a U-Turn to get a photo of Greg and Merry by the sign.

We made another climb over the bridge on the way back. It was a little steeper heading that direction! It was a beautiful South Carolina day for 30 miles of biking.
