Atlanta Beltline

We started in The Old Fourth Ward and climbed up to the Beltline. IMG_5648  This is looking down at the Old Fourth Ward from the Beltline…IMG_5647

The Beltline is very well kept and has amazing artwork and architecture on the walk. IMG_5577This is Ponce City Market, it is going to be super cool for great shops and unique places to eat.IMG_5644Cool artwork on the Beltline!IMG_5585   IMG_5600    IMG_5609    IMG_5624

The Beltline leads you into Piedmont Park and this group of bike riders came up behind me…IMG_5634 Apparently the Atlanta Police must have a bike riding series for kids for the summer…pretty cool!

If you have the chance, you really need to check it out…IMG_5590(Additional information….this was built on old railway corridors and the Ponce City Market was the old Sears Building. The trains would run directly into the Sears Building, thus this sign…IMG_5580Pretty cool huh?)

Sprig Restaurant and a new trail, who knew?

IMG_3794So, I went to Sprig Restaurant for lunch, it was so very good! I had the veggie plate. Veggie PlateCollard greens, spinach and mashed potatoes with corn bread. It was awesome. Service could not have been better. SprigGreat comfy bar too! I really liked the feel of this place. Then going out to my car I noticed this,IMG_3799Frazier Rowe Park, right nest to this restaurant, a trail. IMG_3802It took about 15 minutes to walk and I was deep in too.IMG_3800It was well marked and a fun little hike, but how many more of these are out there? It is so fun!

IMG_3809This was on the bridge. Well I have to go walk now. Searching for a new trail.

Wow Morningside Nature Preserve!

IMG_3615I have to be honest, when I first got here I had my doubts.IMG_3614This was part of the beginning view. Hmm, I am not sure how great this is going to be, but boy was I wrong! IMG_3622Happy to get going.IMG_3623It is a spectacular trail in the middle of the city. IMG_3626It actually turns into a real trail. With a cool bridge.IMG_3630Right in the middle of it. Then it ends here.IMG_3638So, you have to go back.IMG_3639This was one of my favorite places I have found yet. IMG_3633Have you been here? Did you like it?IMG_3635

Piedmont Park (again)

IMG_3425Piedmont Park has two dog parks. One for big dogs and one for small dogs. There were two Yorkies and a yellow lab in the small dog park (I think the couple of owners were making a connection, very cute). This is the big dog park. It was an overcast day (obviously)

IMG_3426The park is huge and absolutely lovely. It is a great time to visit because it is so cool and not too crowded.IMG_3433This is the pool, which is closed now but just so beautiful. IMG_3435Another shot, I thought I had a shot of the bath house, I will have to look. In this shot you can see the lake behind the pool. So peaceful! IMG_3436They were having something called Wonderlust 108, Music, yoga, games it was wonderful music to walk around the park to.IMG_3446There was a photo shoot on the gazebo.IMG_3460Lots of softball, and beach volleyball going on.IMG_3459Atlanta Botanical Gardens are right next door, we should go visit soon!
