Fleming Island is filled to the brim with old architecture, and historical sites. I love history, so when I find a place over flowing with vintage places, I am in heaven. I find vintage places so enticing that I just cannot get enough. This vintage place was a gorgeous old church from way back when. The church itself is no longer used for services, but can be toured inside if you play your cards right with the care taker. The graveyard has graves dating back to the early 1800s, which was the early times of Fleming Island. Each winding path through out the graveyard just outside of the church was named a different walk, which I found so fascinating. It makes you think of how simple life was, and how much honor and pride people took in their work, and in their lives. It really shines a light on the incredible amount of respect that was given to each person, as an individual that had an impact on the town. Sometimes I think about how nice it would be if life today were that simple. Instead we are so used to a very fast pace environment, everything here, now and ready to go. I, for one, take much pride and honor in my work. I work hard, and I respect everything and everyone. Respect, pride, and honor are all major key ingredients to a fulfilling job well done in my book.
