Default Quiz time.....Where is this?

Due to longevity at work, my vacation time is basically at the maximum. So, the family & I have the opportunity to travel more than we used to. This was from my 1st visit to this beautiful & historic city.



Clue #2:



Does anyone recognize the place? Let's test your knowledge of geography!

Best,
Charles

Default Yes...

The Ravenel bridge and the USS Yorktown, Charleston, SC. I hope you enjoyed your stay.


What the Ravenal bridge replaced was a real trip. Old cantilever truss job, the John P. Grace Memorial bridge, built in 1929, one of the scariest bridges in the country and carried modern traffic into 1995. I have some videos of it being demolished by explosives. It was used in one of the Die Hard movies.

Default I'm clairvoyant....

And those pictures were taken...........from the Waterfront Park dock???


PS I like the big Pineapple fountain and the geysers where the kids play. Probably not today though. It's as cold as a witch's *** or maybe a welldigger's teat.

Actually from the Aquarium!

I used a zoom lens on my iPhone.

Charleston and the bridge over the bay to the USS Yorktown.
I was just there a couple weeks ago.
I HATE driving over tall bridges, and that one had me white-knuckled all the way.

You hardly know you are on a bridge when driving that one. The old bridge was one lane each way and you could reach out and touch the angle iron rail that was between you and the drop, if felt like riding on a roller coaster and had curves in it. Someone equated it to a 'swooping dance with death'.

I spent two weekends aboard the Yorktown with my son's cub scout pack several years ago. It is a very interesting museum, lots of displays and cool airplanes to look at. One of the volunteers was a WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam veteran. Definitely worth the price of admission!
