A walk in the park.

 

I went for a walk here at a local city park. Nothing spectacular really, but I wanted to share these pictures with you. After all, I enjoy seeing photographs from other places I may never get to visit.

I saw a climbing rose; not sure of what the name would be for these particular ones. The purple flower might be a Viola? The Pitcher Plants are known as yellow pitcher plant       ( Sarracenia Flava).

The park service/City beautification committee, built the fake well around a water spiket or hydrant of sort, there once was a railroad spur that ran right beside it. I am guessing it was either used for the railroad or was a fire hydrant for the lumber mill that once existed very near by. Fire was a big concern at the lumber mill.

The big rock with the granite plaque in front, that reads;  This Escambia County native rock, which has endured through the Centuries, is placed here in honor of all the men and women who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. This memorial, a symbol of strength and stability, is a reflection of our nation’s strength. We hereby dedicate this mounment in memory of Brewton native Tamara Thurman and each of her countrymen that perished that day, on this day September 11, 2012

 

The cash grows!

IMG_0281I posted yesterday about our local “treasure hunt”.  This morning the prize pot busted through the $10,000 mark!  People are out all over town going over everything over and over again.  Meanwhile, we all hanging on for the next clue to be posted.

We have people coming in from all over to hunt for the cash now that it has gotten so BIG!  The clues are giving us a headache and the hunt is costing us a lot of sleep.  Some are to the point they just want it to be over so they can find out where the item they are looking for has been for over two weeks now.

SMALL TOWN MONEY HUNT!

They listen for the clues and then go searching where they think the clues are suppose to lead them. Our town has been “a buzz” with people hunting the stash.  Funny thing is, it hasn’t been verified that the money was hidden in our town.  There are several towns that the money could have been placed.

The pot keeps getting bigger as more and more businesses and individuals contribute. Last total I saw was $7850. plus all kinds of other goodies from local businesses.  It is truly hilarious at time watching comments on Facebook  Drivetime with DJ and KJ

It has been confirmed that the stash is not at our town’s Welcome Marquee/message board.  This particular area has been searched extensively and it was annouced on the broadcast today that it is NOT there.

If nothing else, the community has been getting a lot of exercise running around everywhere in a mad dash to find the cash.  Unfortunately, some aren’t listening to what has been said and have forgotten to be considerate of property causing some unnecessary damage to plants and other things about town.  It has been stated that the stash is in plain sight and you do not need shovels or any other tool to get it.  There is no hazard involved in obtaining it.  It is not inside a business, not on private property and definitely not in a dangerous place. That being said STAY OFF THE RAILROAD TRACKS!
