Headed North for some Important appointments

Here we are at Point South, SC. We are here just for over night, car is still hooked up and ready to head in North Carolina on Friday.  Same house, different front yard. LOL

Today's trip was up the East coast of Florida. We tried a new route around Jacksonville that Mark had recommended. Other than some construction it was a neat trip. The views from the motor home crossing bridges are so much better than in an auto. WE crossed the Dames Point Bridge. It is beautiful from a distance, looks like a giant sail ship.
Sherry caught these as we crossed.
 The bridge is over the mouth of the St. Johns River It is a pretty large shipping port, as you can see.
 Today's shipping is mostly containerized shipping. The massive number of containers is mind boggling. The lines below are only a drop in the bucket.
Sherry snagged this one of a Nuclear Plant in the distance.
She got some good ones today.  The I-295 Bypass was our high lights of today.  Tomorrow will be all Interstate to our Belmont exit. We won't stop again since we got fuel today.

Beautiful bridge spans!
We went through/around(?) Jacksonville on the way to SIL's place last year, but I don't recall these images. (Probably on account of the incessant rain and my pout, having to be there. LOL!)

Safe travels and God bless ya. Hate those appt.s but sometimes we do what we gotta do.
