East Coast Ride - July 8, 2017

These pictures were taken with my Fujifilm Finepix HS50 on the roads in the Carolinas and Virginia on July 8, 2017. Our route was mostly I-95 in the Carolinas, with the exception of some time on and near US 301 in the Dunn and Benson areas to avoid traffic, and then US 301 from Richmond all the way north to Bowie. After the pictures were completed, we ran into a few traffic problems. A bad accident on I-95 in Maryland cost us almost an hour, and another on the Garden State Parkway cost about 15 minutes. We got home around 4 AM. Images are shown at a resolution of 800x600. Larger image formats for some images are available by clicking the links below each image.

Cutting over to US 301, where Google says there's a Publix in Colonial Heights. [Crop/Zoom: 1057x1835]

And an erroneous 'US 144' as a bonus. [Crop/Zoom: 1896x3456]
image
After finding that the Publix isn't open yet, we work our way back to I-95. [Crop/Zoom: 846x827]
image
Google also thinks there's a Publix by the airport, so we'll cut over the Virginia 895 toll road. [Crop/Zoom: 1434x630]
