Courthouse


This is the Gadsden County Courthouse which is located in Quincy, a small town just west of Tallahassee. The Confederate war memorial I showed you here on Tuesday sits right behind this courthouse.

This is where you would go if you hit it big in the Florida Lottery. Since I never buy lottery tickets, I would have about as much of a chance of winning as I would taking a trip to the moon up there over the building. Linking to signs, signs.

Rubbish Tuesday


Not exactly rubbish, but these graves in Old City Cemetery downtown are over a hundred years old. Linking to Rubbish Tuesday.

War Memorial




In the south, it is not unusual to find memorials dedicated to Confederate soldiers who died during the Civil War. This one is located in the small town of Quincy, just west of Tallahassee. It sits behind the county courthouse.

They paved paradise….


And put up a parking lot, as Joni Mitchell once sang. or in this case a shopping center and parking lot. This huge 9 acre lot has been shaded by tall pine trees for as long as I can remember. This is what it looked like yesterday. Several years ago I posted a picture of the trees here. I guess you can't fight progress.

Weekend Reflections


Another photo taken at Lake Ella. There are several of what I like to call "turtle barges" floating in the lake and this one happens to have sprouted a bush. You might have to click to enlarge the picture so you can see that a couple of turtles are taking advantage of the nice weather to sun themselves on the barge. Linking to Weekend Reflections.

SkyWatch Friday


Since it is too hot to walk outside, not to mention the mosquitoes, I like to walk around the mall for exercise. Here is one of the skylights. I can't wait for some fall weather, so I can enjoy the fresh air. Linking to SkyWatch Friday.

After I saw this sign, the song got stuck in my head. The small print on this sign is a reminder that aggressive driving is dangerous and citations will be issued. Linking with signs, signs.

Sidewalk Advertisement


I thought this was an interesting way to advertise. Just stencil your web address on a sidewalk that is popular with daily walkers and their curiosity will probably get the best of them, just like it did with me. This happens to be a popular downtown restaurant located close to the Florida capitol building.
