Tropical Snowman

Wanna see a Florida Snowman? He is wearing a baseball cap and a shirt, too. Best thing is he'll never melt. He is made from round floats and is quite handsome.

The snowman is on the same canal used by the African Queen, same side of the canal, but at the opposite end, closest to the ocean. It is on public property right next to the National Marine Sanctuary buildings and moorings where their boats are kept.
