USA 29 April: Columbia, SC - Charleston, SC

During our run today where the temperature went up to 82 F, Vladmir noticed the mirage effect on the asphalt as the runner, Mark, ran in the distance. While taking some good photos, Vladmir said it looked like the runner was swimming in liquid.

We did actually get to swim in a very nice liquid, the Atlantic Ocean, this evening after our run through Goose Creek on our way to Charleston, South Carolina. Vladmir was the navigator and was telling me which way to go as he used my GPS navigation software on my iPhone. At one point he said, “Do you see that road ahead, route 61? It goes to the right.” So as I was desperately trying to maneuver over to the right lane before reaching route 61, he said, “Don’t take it.” This was his way of making sure I did not take a wrong turn.

We meet some many wonderful and kind hearted people on the road. It really lifts us up when they take the time to hold the torch and share their aspirations for harmony.

This guy brought his own torch.

From the macro to the micro Mother Nature keeps us in awe!

Finally finding Folly’s Beach, we went slowly into the cold Ocean water. At first I did not think I would go all the way in, but soon the water seemed quite refreshing as the beauty and energy of the Ocean environment welcomed us, soothing our tired muscles.

The women’s team actually stayed at a motel near that beach, called the Holliday Inn.  They reported great access to the waves and sunny smiles from the staff.

The rest of us enjoyed the peace and quiet of the James Island County Park campground a few miles away. It was a stunning campground.

"Hey Drsalu, ten more miles!"
