Water over the Rocks

Today the Reedy River is primarily recognized for its beautiful and scenic shoal and waterfall at Falls Park in Greenville, South Carolina. However, the Reedy River is much more than just a scenic downtown attraction. It is an important riparian system that stretches from the mountains all the way to Lake Greenwood.

Bridge to View Iguazu Falls

Not really a bridge, but bit more of an observation deck to view the majestic Iguazu waterfalls.

Iguazu Falls are waterfalls of the Iguazu River on the border of the Argentine province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná. Together, they make up the largest waterfall in the world. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. For most of its course, the river flows through Brazil; however, most of the falls are on the Argentine side.

Tower Bridge London

Moving this week to bridges captured from the rest of the world.

Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London, built between 1886 and 1894. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and has become a world-famous symbol of London. As a result, it is sometimes confused with London Bridge, about 0.5 miles upstream.

Savannah’s Historic River District

River Street in Savannah, Georgia is a glittering, multi-faceted gem along the broad Savannah River. The century old buildings, once cotton warehouses, have been converted to antique shops, distinctive boutiques, spectacular galleries, quaint brew pubs, fabulous restaurants, unique nightspots, elegant inns and hotels. Cruising on a paddleboat under the Talmadge Memorial Bridge is an experience.
