Quiet, Quaint, and Quirky- Crawfordville Florida, My Home town

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!  
Many of you wonder where exactly BB lives. 
Does Babushka truly live in a rural little town?  

Come join me in a tiny toquesito of my home town, Crawfordville Florida.

Azalea Park Crawfordville Florida USA

 One of the things that endeared me was the park right smack in the middle of the town.  
Truly, it was one of the deciding factors of my move.

On the town's main street (for most of it there are only 2 lanes) is this charming park, stopping any road rage or work worries and instantly calming the soul.

Of course if you want something a little livelier the park can supply you with that too.

Walking Trail where Sweetie and I met for our first date.

At first I thought it was a rural salute to Stonehenge, but then I saw-

Quee?? JU SO FONII!!!  BB had no idea what the round was for.  
In my defense, if they had to put up signs then Babushka wasn't the only one.

And speaking of signs...
leashed dogs are welcome to use the walking trails too.

Of course there are other animals in the park 

No se, don't find these so cute since I heard they're called the Rats of the Forest.
But you know what really is cute?

Donated to the town, this statue is painted by volunteers.  We never know what he'll be from one month to the next. Usually he's painted to match the season or an upcoming holiday or event.  Some will hate it, some will love it, but he's done with the heart and we all call him Ours.  

Crawfordville, you've seen the quiet and quaint, now for the quirky. Quee?? No, No My Beautifuls the Lion-dressed-as-a butterfly isn't it.  Having moved from Miami this rural little town is my vacation place, my place to relax and just enjoy. Y tu sabes where my fav vacation place is right?  Disney World of course and Crawfordville has  in BB's mind many similarities, and I've even found a real life homage to Disney right here.  I call it-

Babushka doesn't believe in coincidences/casualidades.  
You've got (Tow) Mater Mile and (Doc) Hudson Park
And our own Rodent (of the Forest) too!!

Quiet, Quaint, and Quirky- My Home town of Crawfordville fits BB to the Q.

Y'all come up and visit us sometime oyeron??
