DAY 85: BRUNSWICK, GA TO GROVETOWN, GA

We continued our journey with the eighty-fifth day beginning in Brunswick, GA. The sun began to peer out from behind the dark clouds. Large trees swept over the small town Georgia roads.  As we kept heading north, we crossed the South Brunswick River by way of the Sidney Lanier Bridge. At almost 8,000 feet long it is currently the longest spanning bridge in Georgia. A couple of oversized loads were being transported with escorts at their front and rear. Next we saw another big load, a mobile home, being carried by a red semi-truck. In Richmond Hill, GA some festive Halloween decorations greeted us with some smiling ghosts and a black dragon. From the highway we could see downtown Savannah, GA as we approached the state line. There was a gold domed clock tower with an American Flag flowing from its peak. This building is the Savannah City Hall. The domed roof rises 70 feet into the air and was originally made in copper but was gilded in 1987 with sheets of 23-karat gold leaf. We then crossed the state line into South Carolina. The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge was our connection over the Cooper River in Charleston, SC. The 13,000 ft bridge runs next to the Charleston Harbor. We could see a tugboat floating around the inlet that connects to the Atlantic Ocean. We visited our sponsor Schnellecke Logistics. The meeting was very nice and we had a great time speaking with them about our tour with the ID. 4. We thank them very much for their continued support. Returning to the Peach State, Georgia, the day was over in Grovetown, GA.
