Hello Meetup.com Sidetrackers.

Due to a work conflict, the leader of our paddle this weekend had to cancel the event. Fortunately, another member, Diane, decided to schedule this walk the bridges
and Riverside Arts Market. Please join us if you can. The following will provide all details.

  May 22nd Saturday, 8:30 am.

We will start in the parking for the Riverside Art Market, Fidelity National Financial parking lot on 601Riverside Ave. below I-95.

                Directions: Take I-95 north, get off at the Park St. exit, turn right on Park, turn right on Rosselle St.(first right), go across Riverside Ave. into the parking lot.

We will walk from there to the north bank Riverwalk(which is 1.2 miles long). The walk will include the two downtown bridges, Main and Acosta(the hill), The Landing, the south bank Riverwalk(which is 1.5 miles), Friendship fountain, the beautiful Jacksonville skyline and of course the beautiful St. Johns River. If you are new to Jacksonville, it is a great way to see the city and some of us that have been here for a while can point out points of interest and give you stories.

If we have enough people and interest, we can do it in two groups. A group that wants a good work out, faster pace and a longer walk. And a group that wants to stroll, explore and a shorter distance. Something for everyone.

After the walk, we can explore the Riverside Arts Market. If you are not familiar with the Art Market check it out http://www.riversideartsmarket.com/

You don���t have to let me know you are coming, just show up.

Leader Diane
