Casino Boat

Unknown Mami

This week my city shot is a now defunct Casino boat that I found when I went down by the river in Green Cove Springs, FL. Green Cove Springs is just steps outside of the city of Jacksonville. The dock yard was infinitely interesting as was this casino. To see more cities from around the world, please head on over to Unknown Mami's place. She does this carnival each week and it's truly a joy to take a peek into places that I might never get to see otherwise.

It looks like the boat was given a quick whitewash to cover up all of the markings that it was a casino.  I think the natural elements have won the jackpot in this case and the former life of the boat are being revealed.

This is my favorite part of the boat - the Keep Out signs.

Keep out Butch Said So!

Well, if Butch said so, I'd better not mess with it.

Have a great day!

Those photos are rather eerie in a way. You're a great photographer, BTW. Happy Sunday!

Butch just called and wanted to know how you got so close to his boat.

It is definitely showing some signs of wear. Butch may want to paint, or maybe he'd rather sell. Good pics, as usual.

Love the Genies fading on the boat-- Very cool. And glad you didn't run into Butch.
Happy SIMC, jj

I wonder if you would find some coins from the casino hidden on there?

I would never want to mess with Butch!

I collect dice so you know which picture I like the best :)

I wouldn't cross Butch for a bag of gummy bears. Seriously, you don't tug on Superman's cape and you don't spit into the wind and you don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with Jim but for Pete's sake, LISTEN TO BUTCH cause he said so!

I don't want to meet Butch. I guess you didn't meet him... :)
Have a good week ahead!
