The Master’s Tournament is one month away. Busy homeowners are preparing for guests or renters. I saw the first Redbuds in bloom today and Daffodils and Tulips are ready to burst into bloom. In less than a month Augusta will be in full flower with Dogwoods and Azaleas leading the march to Springtime. Living in Augusta at this time of year makes me wonder why anyone would up want to live up north.
We’re blessed with a great climate and an abundance of opportunities for recreation, family activities and exercise. While we’re best known for Golf, Disc Golf is also huge in Augusta. Lakes, Rivers and Ponds provide great boating, fishing and swimming opportunities. Ancient Indian sites, Revolutionary War & Civil War History sites are all around us here. When you yearn for the excitement of big cities; Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC are 2 1/2 hours away, as are the historic cities of Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA and mountains of north Georgia. Here are some photographs (there are many more I’ll add to future posts) to give you an idea of local opportunities and a few that are a short drive away:
