Now, someone told me that a landmark cannot move & I beg to disagree.

Every time we went to Port Orange, or to the Flea Market in Daytona, this guy was always strutting along side of the road at the same intersection.

Those of you who know me at all, know how terrible I am with directions, and how not knowing my way somewhere can get me quite frazzled. I am never watching the road signs, rather the scenery and landmarks so to say…

The first time I decided to go it alone to the Flea Market, I wanted to confirm the directions with Daddy…

He said “Take Lake Helen Osteen to I-44 & turn right”… Ok yeah I got that…

Then from previous memory I knew to turn at the first left past the Florida Plants & Trees Sign… got that…

Then he said “Take that road to Tomoka Farms Road, and turn left”… Wait? What road? Where’s that??? The confusion must have showed on my face…

He said, “You know, at the Cabbage Patch”… Wait, the WHAT???? Oh Jeez! Where the HECK is that???? Confusion still must have been showing…

Then Daddy said, “You know, where your big rooster is… turn left there”… OH YEAH !  I got it now!!!

Then, “Take that road all the way in until you see the Flea Market on the right hand side”… GOT IT!!! Never ONCE got lost goin to the Flea Market!!

So you tell me… CAN a landmark move??? Well, I tell you this… In my world it sure can!!!
