Wanna Come to Town with Me?

Photobucket
Here we are at the end of the driveway. We’re going to turn left onto Ocheessee Landing Road. Daisy is our guide to the next driveway!

Photobucket
½ mile of dirt and then we see Shady Grove Road

Photobucket
See the paved road?

Photobucket
Yep, and we are turning left again onto Shady Grove.

Photobucket
Lovely road, no?

Photobucket
On the left is Jackson Tomato Farms… not much to see right now. They harvest two crops of tomatoes a year along with melons.

Photobucket
Oohh… let’s take a detour here on Arkansas and show all the nice readers a cypress pond in case they’ve never seen one before.

Photobucket
Here we are at the boat ramp.

Photobucket
It’s really very pretty in the non-winter months.

Photobucket
Back on the road.

Photobucket
Another shot of the tomato farm. They grow peppers too.

Photobucket
Excuse the glare, I was taking pictures while I was driving… LOL This is a hay field (hay meadow?)

Photobucket
Lots of cows. Cows everywhere. Yummy cows. These are Belted Galloways. Also called Oreo Cows. Wonder why?

Photobucket
Corn. For the cows. Nice.

Photobucket
We are five miles down the road and now we junction with highway 69. We are turning right here. Surprised? 

Photobucket
Here comes Grand Ridge. Are you ready? No blinking allowed.

Photobucket
You blinked, didn’t you? You almost missed the Post Office!

Photobucket
The Town Hall. A place of much excitement. I’m sure. There’s bound to be some excitement there. Right?

Photobucket
Just a few minutes down the road and we junction with hwy 90.

Photobucket
Barn Nanny is at this intersection. Very handy to have a feed store so close by!

Photobucket
On highway 90. Four lanes. Are you impressed?

Photobucket
Don’t be. It’s only for a couple hundred yards!

Photobucket
What have we here? This is one of the roads we can turn on to visit our friends, the H’s!

Photobucket
Approaching Marianna. Alas… see the signal light ahead?

Photobucket
Crossing the mighty (cough, choke, sputter) Chipola River

Photobucket
One of three or four strip malls. This is where Goodwill lives.

Photobucket
Nearing the court square area.

Photobucket
Fresh sweet potatoes or citrus anyone?

Photobucket
We’re there! Welcome to Marianna.

Photobucket
Here comes the downtown/court square area.

Photobucket
Downtown. We’re going to turn right here and swing by Tony’s office.

Photobucket
There it is.

Photobucket
Oh look! What do I see? Tis the reason for my errand!

Photobucket
Here comes Tony. Janean is with him. She’s coming to tell me how much she LOVES the Struffolli I sent to the office with Tony.

Photobucket
I love this house. It’s right across from Tony’s office.

Now let’s drive around the court square…

Photobucket
The court house

Photobucket

Photobucket
Oh, look! It's Philip from church. Hello Philip!

Photobucket

Photobucket
We’ve circled the square LOL and we are heading back toward home on 90.

Photobucket
Fussy Britches. A day care. Just kidding…
Photobucket
Oh, let’s take a right at the junction on 70something and go home via the interstate so you can see The Walmart.

Photobucket
There. Wasn’t that worth it?

Photobucket
There’s I 10 just ahead.

Photobucket
Interstate driving is boring and ugly. I took this picture for my friend Charlotte… can you see that Charlotte? What does it say?

Photobucket
Just a few minutes down the interstate and we are at our exit. Back onto hwy 69. We basically made a big circle.

Photobucket
Cotton field

Photobucket
We are back on Shady Grove. Our turn is just ahead.

Photobucket
Back on Ocheessee Landing Road

Photobucket
Home Sweet Home

Tallahassee is such a beautiful area of Florida. (smiles and runs from the room, convinced that Dana cannot catch her)
