Lights and Sounds of Christmas in Jacksonville
Before going to The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens last Tuesday, I went to Friendship Park in Jacksonville. There is a pretty fountain there in which the music and lights are programmed with the water to make a gorgeous display! This fountain is close to the Main Street bridge, otherwise known to me as the blue bridge, which was even bluer with its lights!
I walked part way up to the top of the bridge, which was easy to do and very popular with joggers! It is a drawbridge and before I got to the top, traffic was halted and crossing bars went down so the bridge could open for a sailboat. I didn't complete my walk up to the top of the bridge and down to the other side to the Jacksonville Landing, but I had a great view of the Landing from my position on the bridge.
The lights back at Friendship Park and Fountain seemed to be even more spectacular, since the sun had set.
After taking more photos, and wishing that I had brought a tripod to take the evening shots, I went to The Cummer which had two great exhibits going on. One was a photographic study of people and customs in Africa that was just about ready to leave the museum. The other was the first night of a special exhibit of paintings about Florida.
