It is the Charleston Cooper Bridge. I have been wanting to try running it since we got here, and today being our last day I decided it was time to go for it! The bridge has a pedestrian walk way and a bike trial going across it. One way is 2.5 miles.
I ran across it and back, making a total of 5 miles. Oh yeah, did I mention that it also has EIGHT lanes of traffic and it 200 feet above the ocean?!
Yeah, I felt pretty darn hardcore. Talk about adrenaline rush. It was AMAZING! And such a good view!
I wanted to take my camera while I was running, but I really didnt want to drop it into the ocean or anything. So i figured that it was probably best to just leave it in my car where it would be safe and sound.
This morning before the run I had my usual breakfast while I am here:
When I got home I got ready and we went to Fort Sumter. It is an old fort off of Charleston Harbor that was used during the Civil War. We took a boat to get to the harbor and spent a few hours there.
Here is me being VERY annoyed with my mom for not listening to me, but playing it off as a joke :)

Back on the boat on the way back:

We didn't end up getting back home until almost 230! So we were all STARVED. And I don't know about you guys, but every single person in my family inherited that gene that makes you really really cranky when your hungry.
I finally got some sandwich stuff, so I was able to fix up a pretty legit sammie for lunch.
Turkey on Wheat with Lettuce, Tomato, Cheese, and Mustard. All toasted up!
My sister and I had planned on going out for sushi last night, but the weather got pretty bad and I didn't really feel like driving all the way back into Charleston. So we went to eat with the parents instead. We plan on going for sushi tonight.
Here is me and Sister #1 all dressed up for dinner:
And sister's #2 and #3:
Now its off to soak up as much sun as possible on the last day! Tomorrow we go home!
Hope everyone is having a great FRIDAY!
Lots of Love, <3 Ems.
