Anyone Want Anything To Drink?

I have a walking loop that I do pretty regularly (not regularly enough) near my home that is about 2 miles long. It takes me through the "country" farm land our house is in the middle of, down to a beach park and back. There is a school, lots of sugar cane and mum fields, and some bull pens along the way. I can hear roosters crowing from pens behind some houses, and smell the sea at the same time. It can be an amazing walk depending on the time of day and the circumstances of the environment. One thing I can always count on though, if I happen to get thirsty, is that there are soda machines around every corner....in the middle of nowhere, there will be a machine sitting out in the open offering cold or hot beverages for the road weary. I stopped to get a shot of these ones because they were such a perfect example of how they can just spring up anywhere. As long as you have some yen, you'll always be able to quench that thirst.

That's hilarious.

How strange. And yet refreshing, depending on how thirsty you are!

I love the ones that talk to you even if I don't know what they are saying. I love the traffic mirrors too - they make so much sense, but do they really need them on this corner? Maybe during growing season, things grow pretty high up and then you need them. You will have to report to us on that one!

I miss those machines...

And the Royal Milk tea on blistery cold walks to the train station.
