Hopeland Gardens and the Curiosity Shop

This afternoon we drove to Aiken, about 30 minutes from here. First Lisa bought some English food essentials, such as custard and ginger biscuits at the Curiosity Shop. Then we went for a walk around Hopeland Gardens. We intended to visit the Thoroughbred Hall of Fame on our return, but by then it was closed. I suppose that gives us an excuse for another visit in the spring.

Lunch at the Pinnacle Club

Today I had lunch with the Willow Lake ladies at the Pinnacle Club, a private dining club in Augusta. There were magnificent views of the Savannah river and Augusta from the 17th floor.

Georgia Master Gardeners

One of our neighbors is a Master Gardener so I went to a lecture on Orchids and lunch with her today. It was held at the Savannah Rapids Pavillion in a room with incredible views. I am considering becoming a Georgia Master Gardener.
