Another sky to watch

These pictures were taken while traveling South bound back into Delaware, from New Jersey, on the Delaware memorial bridge.

I couldn't resist taking pictures of such a neat bridge and beautiful sky!


This bridge is the longest twin span bridge supposedly in the world. There are 8 lanes, 4 going into Pennsville, NJ and 4 going into New Castle, DE. The first of the two spans was opened for traffic in 1951 and so many vehicles crossed over that they decided to build the second span, which then opened for business in 1968. Current cost for a trip is $3, but you only have to pay that going into Delaware.

That bridge is awesome. Interesting that only Delaware charges you to visit, but NJ doesn't!

$3 is a bargain for a bridge out there! The pictures are wonderful!

I love the first one with the curved lines leading the eye in to appreciate the sky.
