Big John.

Big John Statue

A well-meaning, hurricane-surviving hulk hoists car-size bags of groceries in a supermarket parking lot. The fiberglass sculpture was a grocery store's mascot from 1969-1986; now he serves as a town booster.

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.
