Most of the time a bridge is just a means to cross over an obstacle. However, on occasion it can be much more than simply a means to reach a destination. The Indian River Inlet Bridge is a structure that has transcended beyond a piece of infrastructure to become an iconic landmark. During the day it's aesthetically pleasing but, when the sun sets and the bridge lights come on, it's then that it's true splendor is revealed. Brilliant blue beams of light follow the support cables up and then into the night sky. These beams of light can be seen many miles away and the moisture content of the ocean air ensures that they travel high into the sky. So the next time you're going to be in the Bethany Beach area, take the time to cross the bridge one night and enjoy the view.
