Veterans Memorial Plaza and Riverwalk

The other day, hubby and I drove to Milton and visited the Veterans Memorial Plaza and Riverwalk. They are right next to each other. You can’t visit one without visiting the other. And, BTW, it was open to the public during the government shutdown because it is owned and operated by the city/town of Milton, NOT the U.S. government.

Anyway, I took a few pics. Hope you enjoy them.

The guy you see in some of the photos is hubby. He is a Vietnam Vet. He has a brick out there with his name on it that my brother and his family got for him.

The grasshopper is called an Eastern Lubber Grasshopper. They have wings but do not fly; they can jump, but are very clumsy. So they walk everywhere they go. Oh, and they are HUGE….4 inch body length! They are supposed to be common here in Florida, but in all my 30+ years living here, this is the first one I have ever seen.
