We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Fleet Landing Restaurant on the waterfront. We started with their specialty Fleet Landing Hush Puppies. Get this, they were a veloute of lobster, rock shrimp, leek, corn with a house made cocktail sauce, maybe one of the best appetizers I’ve ever had. I can almost taste it now. Wow, I digress. Anyway, on the walk back to the hotel we passed by the Savannah’s Candy Kitchen and found this big cone. Looks like raspberry to me, what do you think?
We drove into Philadelphia during the Democratic Convention, it seemed only fair since we were in town during the Republican Convention in 2000. There was lots to do and at lunch time what better than stopping at Reading Terminal Market for lunch. I had to have a cheese steak to celebrate being back. While there we spotted this Big Ice Cream Cone.
A quick down to Ocean City with Deb and Nate netted me three Big Things. It was lousy weather in Cherry Hill but sunny and warm “down the shore.”
We were crossing Pennsylvania going from Pittsburgh to State College to spend the night before getting to Nancy and Tony’s cabin the next day. Along the way, I’m not quite sure where it was, maybe along US-22 the Chief Photographer spotted this Big Blizzard. A quick turn around and we grabbed this image.
I’ve visited Santa Monica, CA over the years and seen it change from a campy artistic, interesting area to what it is now, another area of upscale shops just like the shops at the Fashion Square Mall a mile away from my home. How disappointing, but expected. Before a great dinner with Julia and Dan at The Lobster on Ocean Ave. & The Pier we walked over to the 3rd street mall. While there I spotted this ice cream cone and had to get a photo.
We finished our Log Cabin getaway with some browsing in the shops in Nashville, IN. This cone is not the first I’ve had my photo taken with in Nashville. However the last one was in December and the weather was much chillier than it was on this day.
Maybe by the time you get to Pigeon Forge this ice cream stand will be finished, it was pretty well along the way to completion. Next door to Fantasy Golf, it will be a good place to stop and enjoy a soft serve cone, maybe dipped in chocolate with some jimmies on top.
Bethany Beach has many good shops and places to explore. It was a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours browsing around the shops. The experience was much difference than the shops in Ocean City, Maryland, where we rented a condo for the week. We stopped at a coffee place but then found this shop selling gelato. A nice cone outside.
This Big Ice Cream carton is part of an ensemble. Together with a Big Cow (for the story on getting this image see info on my Big Cows page) which is part of a traveling promotional event sponsored by Turkey Hill Dairy. Mounted on a trailer along with the cow it travels around the country. Thanks, pharmacy Karen!
On our way to a meeting south of Danville, IL with Ann and Sid and spotted this Big Ice Cream cone at Mike’s Chill inTilton. Didn’t have time to stop on the way in but stopped to get this image on the way home.
Ray’s Ice Cream, right next to Bolero Bowl and down the street from The Oak Drive-in. A walk down memory lane, “take me back,” says Deb. My neighborhood was a little farther south but I did bowl at Bolero, 16 lanes, and ate a cone or two at Ray’s. We were driving past last summer when I spotted this cone in the window. We had a nice interaction with the folks on duty at Ray’s. Stop in if you have a chance, Royal Oak, Michigan on Livernois, just north 13 1/2 (which is Normandy.)
I was on my way to Hong Kong last Spring and had a looooonng layover in the airport in Minneapolis. Jack and I took the tram over to the Mall of America to take a look around. If you haven’t been there the Mall has an amusement park right in the middle. We found this cone and Jack snapped my picture. It’s been MIA for a while, but now it’s found!
After taking the New Era silo shot we were shooting straight down M-100 to pick up the interstate and made a wrong turn. Well, there in front of the Corner Cone at 201 W Jefferson at the “corner” of Harrison was this ice cream cone. I don’t care if it was a fancy trash container, it’s still darn big.
Got this ice cream cone in Stratford-on-Avon during our England trip in 2004. I have received some emails from Brits with Big Thing sightings but didn’t have time for anything but opportunistic shots. I wonder if the Bard likes ice cream.
Umm, ice cream! Got this image down in Brown County in a town named Nashville (Indiana, that is) when Debbie and I were celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversity. It’s a town filled with shops to browse in, eat in and walk past. If you are ever down that way and want a very nice dinner I suggest you eat at the Story Inn.
Another bird dog shot thanks to my sister. This ice cream cone is right in front of an elementary school outside St. Louis. (Catherine, I need more directions.)
I call this the Casablanca Cone. This is a more or less stationary inflatable that shows up outside the Casablanca Ice Cream Parlor. Timing is everything in cases like this since, even though you know it appears you have to be ready to take action. One cell phone call and I dropped what I was doing, grabbed the camera and moved. This hobby is not for the faint of heart.
