…boat pier at Allen Pond Park in Bowie, Maryland.
“The Stone Trumpet” was created by David Adickes for the stage at the Louisiana World’s Fair Exposition that took place in New Orleans in 1984. It was relocated to Galveston in 1986 for the opening of a Jazz restaurant. Musicians might notice that it is actually a cornet rather than a trumpet. It is made from a mixture of steel and concrete and measures 14 feet tall by 26 feet in length. The sculpture sits in the Strand Historic District in Galveston.
Yet another hurricane victim, this restaurant sits across the channel from the Kemah (Texas) Boardwalk.
That time it snowed 35 inches (89cm). The second of back-to-back storms ended February 24th but I didn’t leave the comfort of the house for several days. There’s a split rail fence in the back and, because of the snowdrift, you could barely make out the top rail.
Do I miss Maryland winters? No.
