The top picture is of the main brick pathway through Maclay Gardens State Park. It runs from the entrance gates up to the Maclay House and is right next to Lake Hall which you can catch glimpses of through the trees to the right. This walkway was created in 1968 from bricks that were recycled from an old street in Tampa, Florida. These bricks were originally made in different cities and if you look at them closely, you will see names like Baltimore, Augusta and Birmingham. The second shot is a closeup of one of the old bricks. The third shot is another pathway through the gardens leading away from the Maclay House. I love the way the moss hangs down from the trees over your head as you walk down the pathways. It's like walking under a canopy. Enlarge the pictures to get a better view.
