Good Fences

Last week I showed some closer and more detailed pictures of that fire tower here. This picture gives you a better idea of how pretty the area surrounding it is with a nice fence in the foreground and another fence way back off in the distance behind the tower.

Full Press

I liked the way this place hung their sign from those brightly painted red pipes in front of their store. Full Press Apparel is located on Gaines Street near Florida State University.

Where's the fire?

I was sitting next to this cute little vintage riding toy fire truck while I was eating lunch in a sandwich shop over the weekend. I'm not sure if it is a replica or the real thing, but I think it's still a treasure. If it had been for sale, I would have bought it for my youngest grandson.

Florida Liberty Bell

The Florida Liberty Bell is located on the east side of the Capitol complex in front of the House of Representatives Office Building downtown. This is one of 55 replicas of the original Liberty Bell that were cast in Annecy-le-Vieux, France by Fonderie Paccard. The bells were ordered by the United States Department of the Treasury in 1950 as part of a savings bond drive and given to each state and territory and the District of Columbia. They were meant to be displayed and rung on patriotic occasions, but obviously this one is only being displayed.

A little nap

This goose was napping by a tree at the edge of a pond in front of the courthouse I showed earlier this week.

Don't fence me in

This is one fence you definitely want to be on the outside of because it surrounds the Federal Correctional Institution, a low-security United States federal prison for female inmates located on the east side of Tallahassee. It is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the United States Department of Justice.

I hear that train a comin'

This railroad crossing is very close to my house, in fact those woods on the right side of the tracks are right behind my neighborhood. When my family first moved in years ago, every time a train would go by, it sounded like it was about to run right through the house. Now I'm used to it I guess, because the only time I notice it is at night when the conductor blows the horn as the train approaches this railroad crossing. I kind of like hearing that sound now and whenever my grandkids are visiting, they like to see who can be the first one to yell "train!".

First District Court of Appeal

The Florida First District Court of Appeal is housed in an impressive building located southeast of downtown. I was there on a Sunday afternoon, so I did not go inside. The state of Florida is divided into five districts. The First District includes 32 counties in the northern part of the state. To find out more about the history, jurisdiction and function of this court you can visit their website here.
