As is the norm with motorcycle riding, when you jump on the saddle and just go, you end up in the coolest places.
This past Memorial Day, taking the day off, I decided to go out for a ride. Being new to the Saint Augustine area, I didn’t really know where to go and I didn’t feel like using Google to figure it out. Sometimes we forget, myself included, that before Google, I would just jump on my motorcycle and say “I’m going that way.” And that’s exactly what I did.
I ended up riding in Clay county and came across the old courthouse. So, of course, as an attorney, I had to stop and look at it. Interesting enough, the old Clay County courthouse was only one of four courthouses built in Florida before 1900. It was built in 1889 and is recognized on the National Registry of Historic Places. However, the coolest part was when I walked over to the west side of the building and came across a section honoring our military. Since it was Memorial Day, I knew it was just meant to be.
Those honored date back to the Civil War through the Korean War, Vietnam, World War I & II, and even the Global War on Terrorism.
