Sunny South Carolina

Glenn sporting his I Care I Cure I Cycle t-shirt in Historic Beaufort, SC

Today was a relatively short ride for Glenn....about 63 miles.  Our goal was to get to Beaufort, South Carolina today.....we did that and have enjoyed a more leisurely afternoon perusing the cute shops and soaking in the beautiful waterfront scenery.   We found a motel right in the historic downtown district and can walk to dinner early dinner and a short walk in case Glenn is running out of energy!

Glenn's decision to stray from the East Coast Greenway directions was almost a big mistake!   He reached a long bridge that had posted signs saying "no pedestrians and bicycles allowed to cross".  After consulting someone in the Savannah Visitors Bureau office, he ventured across the bridge despite the signs!  He had no problem crossing and no ticket was issued so it was a good move.   We know now why the Greenway directions did not suggest this route!

Glenn enjoyed pedaling through the Low Country marshlands which provided him with some nice scenery.  Tomorrow our goal is to reach Charleston.   Our stop in Beaufort may make tomorrow a shorter ride for Glenn and will be a pleasant place for me to hang out tomorrow morning!

Just to prove that I am on this trip too!
