Big Peach on a Pole

I visited the Big Peach Antiques Mall under that big giant peach on a pole and found they've reopened and are better than ever. If you need a good pit-stop on the way down I-75 then stop there. You're bound to leave with something great.

Pit-stop, nyuk-nyuk.

Giant Peach Orb

In addition to the faded peach water tower to the south of exit 149 on I-75, there is a second, more impressive giant peach just north of exit 149 alongside the east side of I-75. This giant peach is orb-shaped and features a huge leaf and stem. The orb apparently lit up at night (until quite recently), but the antique mall that was feeding the electricity went out of business. I drove my car right up underneath the orb. Drive up to the peach factory outlet stores and go behind the shops.
