SC - 90 Minute Super Visit

On the way into Greenville, SC
     When calculating our mileage from GA to NC, it came to our attention that it was going to be a bit of a stretch to make the trip in one day.  So, of course, I immediately began to search for a midway point (with something fun to  Lo and behold....a waterfalls...yippee!  We added another hour to our drive, but since we were splitting it up by staying one night on South was a moot point!
     The picture of the falls looked wonderful, but I've learned to be thrilled with whatever it ACTUALLY looks like as I've been traveling.  You expectations, but I've always added a healthy dose of intention...LOL

A bit of history

Well, what a surprise to discover that the Falls at Reedy Creek were even more lovely than the web displayed!  Right smack in the middle of downtown Greenville, South Carolina, was a spectacular park nestled in a 'valley' slightly below street level!  How charming!!!!  It was also a dog-friendly park, so on went the harness and leash and off we went with Sasha...who totally enjoyed herself.  (We were so happy because she has NOT been pleased with all the stopping and starting we have been doing since we left Myakka.)
     The falls consisted of several beautiful cascades, then a bit further down the river, there was a smaller one, then even a third as we walked along.  I'll allow the photos to speak to the beauty of the falls as well as the surrounding park grounds.  Wow!  What a wonderful 90 minute surprise!
