Remembering Flagler

Deep south of Miami proper, over near the zoo, lies a museum to a grander time in Florida’s history. The time of the trains. The Gold Coast Railroad Museum has a number of locomotives and cars, many of which you can experience from the inside.

The music playing as you walk over to the trains is somewhere from the early 1930s. And if you squint your mind just the right way, you can almost imagine it. Me, wearing a suit and tie, porters carrying my luggage, kids in knickers playing. It probably wasn’t as romantic as what we want it to be, but it’s also not “now”.

I did enjoy the trip very much. And even though it was a Saturday afternoon, it was deserted. I had it all almost to myself.

For the most part, we’ve got this financially (especially if you buy our book!). But, and there’s always a but, a little help won’t be turned away. If you enjoy what you see and want to help out, any donation would be most appreciated.

And while you’re at it, perhaps head over to Amazon and pick up my new novel: Letters To A Dead Uncle. On the shelves and in the Kindle Store. It’s a travel novel, of sorts. Just me writing to my dearly departed Uncle Jimmy about my latest exploits. More details on the home page!
