Happy birthday to our bridge!

Grace Bride, Cooper River, Charleston, SC
This is the picture I wanted to duplicate when they closed the old Cooper River Bridge. The last cars to drive over it were to be the Model A Club cars just like the first stream of cars to drive over it.

I went with my camera and camped out on the Mt. Pleasant side waiting for the parade of cars. The catch was that the participants were having such a good time, waving, enjoying the scenery and posing for pictures that they didn't arrive in a stream of vehicles but one after another. I couldn't duplicate the shot but I did get a picture of almost every car. What a fun ride that must have been.

 Our bridge is ten years old this weekend and a lot of festivities are planned. Happy birthday!
