Who'da thunk it?

So just below the red and white windmill two houses down my urban/suburban Florida street resides this red and white windmill. As I mentioned yesterday, the person who lives there is an older gentleman who moved to FL years ago from Iowa. And who brought his Heartland taste for barns and windmills to a most unlikely new environment. It's great to live in such a diverse place.

Eeeeek, there's that word, "diverse." :) It sure looks funny in Florida. I like it.

@MontereyJohn: Haha! Yes, but that "d" word has lots of applications - like the paradox of having a Midwest Iowan building his red and white barn and windmill in the heart of Old Dixie.

Does not look like Florida, but it works for him. Cool capture.

It sure doesnt match what I would expect of Florida, but sometimes whats different brings out attention back to notice the everyday things around it we often miss

I love big red barns--reminds me of growing up in Michigan. It's nice that they brought a piece of their old home into their new one.
