From the boardwalk above the floodplain of Butler Creek to the observation deck. Phinizy Swamp Nature Park is located within the city limits of Augusta, just a stone's throw away from the Augusta Regional Airport. A great place to see birds of flight, such as egrets and jets.

The Augusta State Department of Music presented the Jazz Ensemble, student musicians and their director Dr. Robert Foster, in concert last night. The program included selections from John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis, Nat Adderley and others. The Jazz Ensemble is indeed a fine group of young jazz musicians. Looking forward to their next performance scheduled for mid April.

The Miller Theater, located at 708 Broad Street in downtown Augusta, opened in 1940 and was considered one of the finest theaters in the South. Most notably, in 1957, the Miller held the movie premier of The Three Faces of Eve, an adaptation of a case study of a woman who suffered from what was then known as multiple personality disorder. The relatively unknown Joanne Woodward starred in the film for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance. The Theater closed in the mid 80s.

The Sibley Mill is located on the Augusta Canal near downtown Augusta, Georgia. The mill was built on a site previously occupied by the Confederate Powderworks and was completed in 1882. The exterior is ornate, eclectic and neo-gothic. Textile products were produced here until 2006 and is now unoccupied. Time has not been kind to the spires that top the turrets - some part or all are missing.

With a nod to my fellow CDP blogger Virginia Kelser Jones, I wanted to show one of the few remaining ghost signs in Augusta. You can just make out 'Cream of Kentucky' and Pabst Blue Ribbon on this abandoned downtown warehouse - one a straight bourbon whiskey and the other a beer.

Three Hens on the Front Lawn...
I was looking out my front window last week and spied these hens frolicking on the lawn. It caused quite a stir among my neighbors, many of whom were also taking photographs of this very unusual site - afterall, we live in an urban residential area. I suspect that someone in the complex keeps these 'animals' as pets!
