Mount Pleasant

The rainy Sunday continued, so we hopped in the rent car and headed across the bridge to get a closer look at the USS Yorktown. The park at Patriot's Point also had a mock up of a Viet Nam station just like M.A.S.H. had of Korea. The bridge we crossed to get there was impressive! 

 Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge

Arthur J. Ravenel Bridge is a cable-stayed suspension bridge
crossing the Cooper River and was completed in July 2005.

The USS Yorktown - US naval aircraft carrier built during the Second World War.

Fenced-in Naval Base

 Crossing the Cooper River going back to historic Charleston.

My favorite of the bridge.
