Kite Trip #2 Gainesville, Greensboro
August 1, 2015, 7:00 am–5:00 pm
OUR DEPARTURE POINT:
The Galleria McDonalds, located at 1731 Montgomery Highway (US 31) across from the Galleria, will serve as our departure point for this trip, too. Plan to leave at 7 a.m. again. We will caravan west on I-59/20 to exit #97 and head south on AL Highway 5 to Centerville/Brent where we’ll make a rest stop before continuing to Lakeland Farms and the many catfish ponds south of Greensboro. We will have lunch either at the Faunsdale Bar and Grill in Faunsdale or the Pie Lab in Greensboro, depending on which arrangements can be made in advance for a group our size. A stop at Marion Fish Hatchery and/or Perry Lakes Park to watch herons and egrets returning to their roost at day’s end is a likely bet.
Remember, these trips will be daylong affairs so plan accordingly and bring plenty of drinks and snacks in addition to a full tank of gas, insect repellent, rain gear, and appropriate summer attire and sunblock.
