    Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, Charleston.

    Cycle wise it’s a fairly uneventful day today after the architectual highlight of the day. The long Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, at 4 km the longest cable-stayed bridge in the US!

    After a bit little detour (unwanted), I somehow end up on Sullivan’s Island and catch the Isle of Palms Connector road to get back on track. Hwy 17 goes through the huge Francis Marion National Forest (pines), flat, monotonous and lush. I keep cruising through the light afternoon showers that make the temperature drop from 34C to 27C within 15 minutes.

    Near Sullivan Island, SC.

    Road side fans!

    You can buy this day here – and become a part of the WT Hall of Fame 🙂

    I like the monochromatic feeling to this (next) photo:

    South Carolina skies...

    In Georgetown I didn’t find any place to put up my tent, too many people around this Saturday night, so I continue north towards Myrtle Beach, and eventually find a little clearing in the pine forest, just 100 m off Hwy 17, not too bad mosquito-wise (espec. with my new heavy duty Deep Woods repellent, 25% DEET).

    Dinner at my wild camp near Georgetown, South Carolina.

    Tent is up in less than 3 minutes. My spaghetti rings with meatballs down in less than 5.

    On this day..
