Cindy - Florida 10:30-11:15 PM

Today I walked around a local historic town. It is not a very big area, so I found myself walking around a few blocks several times. The architecture is pretty; however, on closer inspection it didn't look authentically historic. It looks like there has been some major renovation, which in fact, there has been.

This collage below is city hall or is it the community center, I forget...
As I got closer to the police station, I noticed a monument. I'm sure I must have passed by it several times, when driving , but never noticed it.
As I approached it I started examining it more closely. The site is called Hero's Park. I was very moved by this monument and am so glad I stumbled upon it, by deciding to walk around this humble little town. Please click on the collage to read more about this wonderful tribute.

This beautiful church was a wonderful subject matter too! I love the red door!

As you will read in Hayley's and Stephanie's posts today, It was hot!! Summer hot! This cozy little store was a great place to duck in and cool off. There were some lovely treasures in this quaint little shop. The spiral staircase going up to the second floor was so small that I had to stand on my tippy toes walking up the stairs, as my feet didn't fit on the steps.
I was hesitant to walk here today, but I'm so glad I did. I found some special and important treasures today.

Did you find anything special on your walk today?
I hope so!:)

What a lovely walk, Cindy! And yes, it was HOT! I think I can't say that enough!

What a beautiful memorial. I'm anxious to find out where this "quaint little town" was. I'm guessing Longwood (since that is where the memorial is dedicated). I never saw Longwood depicted so beautifully!

Great post!
