Guard Lion on South Battery

South Battery, Charleston, S.C.
Grrrrr. I guess this would be called a Guard Lion? I had so much water in my yard after this weekend's rain that I might easily have a Guard Gator or maybe a Guard Snake or two.

I had a mid day meeting cancelled today at the last minute. Unexpected free time is like a little present isn't it? Here - take these two hours and do what you will with them. Yeah!

How about a little blog hopping?

Here is a present for all your friends with iPhones: Micro Tripod on a Keychain. Cool.

Did you see the clip of the alligator grabbing a snack at the PGA on Kiawah last week. I heard the food was expensive so he is fending for himself. Wow.

The statue is far more attractive than some of the lion statues I've seen gracing some lawns. The alligator and snake link was a little atavistic.

I don't normally watch golf being right up there with watching paint dry. However, I worked at Kiawah ages ago, so I have tuned in to get a few glimpses, and I did see the alligator and his breakfast. I guess he can't have poodles every day.

I watched a lot of this tournament but missed this. I heard one threesome had to wait in the middle of their round as an alligator ambled across a fairway! Yikes!

Jess said...

Oh, I like statues, except for the generals on a plinth thing, I like em all.

How about that snake?! It looked huge!

Charlestonjoan said...

Me too Les. I think I am one of the few people who didn't get out there. It was beautiful though.

We need a little of that to remind folks they are in the lowcountry!

I made him look a lot bigger than he really is :)
