Another swift stop on my way up the east coast, I pulled into Augusta, glad to stretch my legs and see a new city. Augusta is a small city, located right on the banks of the Savannah River. I enjoyed my walkabout, learning that Augusta was the home of Woodrow Wilson. I visited his old house, which is also a museum, though it was closed.
While walking, my eye was drawn to some bright colors, and soon I saw a neat looking tea house, which had a strong counter-culture vibe. The walls were covered in really nice art, and the room was fairly well populated with tea and smoothie drinking patrons, even though it was early afternoon on a weekday. I had a nice conversation with the man behind the counter, and I congratulated the whole establishment on its attractive ambiance. Neat to see a little pocket of culture in an otherwise rigid, old fashioned, southern city.
