Random Sculptures in the Woods

Finally, a nice sunny day.  My friend, Lois, took us for a drive and we found some unusual things in the woods. The first thing we saw was a dinosaur crossing and four realistic dinosaur sculptures hiding in the trees so we stopped for some pictures.

Also in the woods very near the dinosaurs is a full-size fiberglass Stonehenge. Not made of stone, but rather a fiberglass type of material. Just like the dinosaurs, there were no signs and no information about who built this here, or when, or why. They are in the trees that line the access road to Barber Marina in Alabama, between Foley AL and Pensacola FL so we assume that might have something to do with it.

And there’s more. Right at the marina is a giant spider sculpture.

There is a beautiful fountain at the entrance to the marina.

And near the fountain you can find life-size statues of four knights lurking in the woods. Just like the dinosaurs and the Stonehenge and the spider there are no signs and they are not advertised as attractions, but they are interesting. We had fun exploring them.

I suppose there could be more interesting things in the trees by that marina and we looked around but did not see anything else. 

We were getting hungry and stopped to eat at Lambert’s Cafe in Foley, Alabama. This is the home of throwed rolls. Yes, they throw a large hot roll to you if you want one, sometimes from clear across the room. And while you are eating they walk around the room with large bowls of  “pass arounds” and offer you addition servings of sides.

On our way home we stopped for a walk on the beach. It was still sunny but on the beach it was kinda cold and windy so we didn’t stay long.

Even the birds were cold.

This sunset was a nice finish to a long, but fun, day.
