Mailbox Monday: For the Little People

In observance of St. Patrick’s Day:

The setting is a remote wetland where the St. Marks River goes underground and reappears several times, creating a natural bridge in one spot.

Looking closer:

And closer still at the mailbox:

I suppose this mailbox doubles as a bluebird house …..or more likely, a moccasin hideout.

As an aside, the state has just bought this land because of its historical significance: the Battle of Natural Bridge was fought here during the Civil War. (The North never succeeded in taking Tallahassee.) I wonder if they will leave the mailbox, door and gnome/leprechaun.

Such a peaceful setting for a battle.
