Valentine Drive

The Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary hosted a Valentine Drive for the Aiken Driving Club on Sunday, February 10.

Sunday's drive was the second consecutive year that the club held its Valentine Drive at Silver Bluff. This year’s event featured 26 carriages pulled by teams of horses as well as miniature ponies. Clear blue skies and temperatures in the 60F’s helped to create a perfect day for the 7.5-mile drive, which offered views of the winding Savannah River, travel through open fields and majestic pine and hardwood forests, and ended with a phenomenal hot gumbo lunch made with shrimp, sausage, and chicken! Everyone returned home happy to have spent the day outdoors and having contributed to Audubon’s efforts toward bird conservation!
