The Things You See Along The Way

We took a short road trip...
always keep your eyes open for fun things like these. 

I saw these musical instruments in a park.
They included a dedication sign for a young man who had passed away...
"We can't always choose the music life plays for us, but we can choose how we dance to it".

The hubs and I played a few tunes before moving on.

Stairway To Heaven

A Wooden Chain Link Fence

This sighting may have been the most unusual of all.
Fire hydrants of every color, size and shape. 

This was my favorite and it had a special meaning.

There was a man there who came out from the firehouse to see us.
He told us all about it's special meaning but I can't remember what it was.
Something with coordinates, and a game...it sounded similar to the Pokemon game.

We saw a lot of Wall Murals

This one was on the highway...a quick moving photo op.
I'm shocked I captured it.

- beauty...it is all around us, if only we take the time to see it -

  7. Hello,
    What a great variety of photos, the painted fire hydrants are neat. I like all the pretty murals.

  8. Now that was a fantastic drive with such a variety of film subjects and loved the instruments and that you played them.

  9. Looks like a fun day out, wow those hydrants would be over kill for dogs wouldn't it, they would get anxious just thinking which one they should pee on first and if they have hit them all, LOL! So fun to come across murals, especially those pretty scenes.
