World's 3rd Largest Fire Hydrant, Beaumont, Texas USA
I must say, it's pretty sneaky to paint a fire hydrant in Dalmatian camouflage. BUT, I managed to find it anyway! Yesterday, while in Beaumont, Texas, I had to pay a visit! Who wouldn't?
There were lots of normal-sized hydrants there, too, also decked out in matching Dalmatian camouflage.
All of the hydrants, both large and small, are located in this plaza, which is located directly across the street from the Fire Museum of Texas,
Also in the plaza is this nice little September 11 memorial.......
......and this statue of two firemen in action. A memorial for Texas firemen.
My visit was brief, but the warm, sunny weather of southern Texas helped to make it very enjoyable before I had to start heading back north to cold winter weather again!
