With all the rain that came through the area the past several weeks, flooding was bound to occur. In an earlier post, pictures painted a graphic picture of some of that flooding.
The flooding closed a bridge along my normal route to and from work so I found an alternate route taking some rural roads taking me out of Florida for a little distance into southern Georgia. It made for a nice change of scenery and some interesting sites. I took my camera along one day after work and took some pictures.
Driving along Hadley Ferry Road in southern Georgia, I passed this historical marker but couldn’t tell what it marked. A few days later, I stopped with my camera to take some pictures and read that I was standing where major league baseball hall of famer Jackie Robinson was born.
The only other item on the site was this chimney.
Along another road I took, Gainey Road, I came across this abandoned building. I don’t know what it used to be. I don’t think it was residential but was probably some sort of commercial building. I guess it might have been a small country store.
If you look carefully through the barred window, you can see the open rear exitway.
I used a flash to get a little better view inside the building without going inside. I didn’t think it would be a good idea to explore in the building.
