More Adventures that came from the Ride on the River

Yesterday Dennis and I did some bike riding along the Greeneway in North Augusta.

Turns out, as I suspected, that the Greeneway goes all the way to I-20.  I knew we had passed a parking lot along the North frontage road between Exit 1 and Exit 5 (SC side) on one of our Miata Club road trips.  Sure enough, Dennis and I parked at that spot, and rode our bikes under I-20 all the way down to the 15th street bridge and back.  It was a long ride (since I hadn’t ridden in a while) but fairly flat (don’t get me wrong there were some hills, but few) and mostly tree covered.

So once again we enjoyed another morning doing something we discovered as a result of the river boat ride on the Savannah River.

I want to thank Jackie Nicholls for organizing that Savannah River boat ride – especially since it was such a nice evening and a good time spent with the Miata club.  But also because Dennis and I have discovered many more things about Augusta and North Augusta as a direct result of that trip.   Thank you Jackie!

I know I’m really late posting this, but…..

I just wanted to say I’m sorry I didn’t post anything about the August dinner at Gail and Millers home and then the riverboat ride on the Savannah afterwards.

First of all thank you Gail and Miller for having us all to dinner!   You have a beautiful home in such a nice location.  I truly enjoyed the fellowship in such gorgeous surroundings!

Then I must say “What a nice ride on the river!”.  It was such a nice evening for it.  It was really enjoyable to have the Captain tell us so much about Augusta/the Savannah River history.  I’m now recommending this boat ride to everyone.  Since then Dennis and I have gone back to check out Hammonds Ferry, taken a walk on the North Augusta Greeneway, and taken a drive along the South Carolina side to try to find some of those big houses we saw from the river.  (Think we did find most of them)

When we went for a walk on the North Augusta Greeneway, and discovered the Brick Pond Park.  What a nice park!  We saw some nice wildlife (including an alligator).  We also tried to discover how far North the bicycle trail goes.  We got as far as the bridge over Martintown Road.  But I’ve come to think that path ties in to the path that goes under I-20 that’s between Martintown Road and Edgefield Rd.  We’ll have to ride it sometime to find out for sure.  We definitely plan to go back to Hammonds Ferry to try out Manuel’s Bread Cafe.  The French Onion soup sounds good.
