Whale of a School

Highlands Elementary School received it's nickname in 1983 after a student won a contest for the schools new slogan. In 1997 sculptor Joe LaMantia carved a wooden whale that sat outside the school which eventually rotted away.

The school then raised $20,000 to create a concrete whale by resident artist Victoria Fuller.  The whale was unveiled in 2011. Standing at ten feet high, the smiling, bright blue whale is bursting out of the water with sea creatures all around. ♡

Muffler Man:  Saloon Cowboy

This fiberglass giant stands in front of Copperhead Road Honkey Tonk Saloon.  In 2012, the general manager wanted something to set the restaurant apart from all others so he had a Muffler Man created from scratch.  The cowboy came accessorzied with an electric guitar, a foamy mug of beer and a stogie. ♡

UFO Watchtower

My favorite stop we made on this roadtrip!  It was closed when we arrived but there was a lady nearby and was so nice to open the gate for us.  The platform was created by Judy Messoline in 2000, in San Luis Valley.  I read she is also an X-Files fan, which in part inspired her to build this(which made this a must see!!👽). Inside she has created her own "healing garden" that over 25 psychics have visited and have stated there are two large Vortexes (opening to a parallel universe) located by the tower.  Over the years people have left tons of items in the garden, we left our Jeep keychain, and its asked that you do not disturb the other items left behind.  All in all, it was an awesome place to visit, would definitely return to experience a possible sighting! 😊👽

An amorphous mascot greets arrivals to the SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

The Big Duck 
Built in 1931 by duck farmer Martin Maurer in Riverhead, and used as a shop to sell ducks and duck eggs until 1984. In 1988, Suffolk County acquired The Big Duck and moved it to its current home in Flanders. The building now houses a gift shop operated by the Friends for Long Island Heritage. The building measures 18ft wide, 30ft long and 20ft tall to the top of the head. The duck's eyes are made from Ford Model T tail lights. Each year in December, the town holds the Annual Holiday Lighting of the Big Duck. 🦆🎄

Two-Story Outhouse
The Howe House was built in 1869 and anonymously donated to the historical society in 1999.  Access to the lower level outhouse is from a porch that wraps around the back of the home. You get to the upper outhouse by walking across the roof. There are six holes in the outhouse, three on each level.  As of today this is the only two-story brick attached outhouse in the United States.

I know this isn't the greatest pic but I just had to share my find with y'all 😀 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In 1986 Gene Stlip along with some accomplices in the middle of the night secretly erected their replica of the Statue of Liberty in the Susquehanna River to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Lady Liberty. The Dauphin Narrows Statue of Liberty stood 18ft tall and was made of plywood and Venetian blinds. In 1992 the statue was blown off her pedestal and in 1997 a heavier more sturdier version built out of metal was erected and stands 25ft tall. 🗽
