Big John Statue

We've been in this parking lot numerous times and I've never paid attention, I guess -- because there he stands, large and in charge. Big John is holding up in the Florida sun pretty well. They've redone SE 47th Terrace Street, and that alone is a reason to go take your picture with Big John.

Eat at the Fish Tale seafood restaurant across the street from Big John -- it's great!

The Big John statue is big. It's easily accessible and wears big Chuck Taylor's and acid washed jeans.

Big John had a makeover in 2011 and now wears a new set of clothes. He is carrying two bags again.

[Peter and Gloria, 02/11/2012]

Looking sharp, Cape Coral-style: the acid-washed jeans effect will mask actual weathering. The sponsored shopping bags are a nice touch.
