In the afternoon we took a drive into Downtown Greenville to take a look at Reedy Falls, a park in the middle of the town which has a small sized waterfall on the river. After spending some time finding somewhere to park (due to it being Saturday i guess and not forgetting the truck my cousin drives) we walked down to the falls. Downtown Greenville is an average sized town and was good as it did not have any of the high rises that i didnt like about the Canadian cities i visitied, and then in the middle of the town is the Reedy River, across the river has been built a suspension bridge which is anchored on one side, this gives the impression when walking across the bridge that its not very stable (millenium bridge style) but of course it is. After enjoying the view of the falls from the bridge we took a walk down to the falls at water level. As the water level was low we were able to walk to the rocks besides the falls. The park that the falls was set in was very picturesque and the weather in the low 70's so we just sat by the river bank and watched the water flow for a while. We then took a walk up to the local Starbucks for coffee, i mention the name as i have tended to give myself the rule that there is no point visiting places i can visit at home such as chain food and drink outlets, still needs must in some cases. After coffee we made our way back to the truck and headed for home.
