Classic Americana - Budweiser Clydesdales

The Budweiser Clydesdales were in town for a visit on Sunday. There was a bit of confusion in social media about the timing of the visit, the item indicated they would be available from 12-2, but in fact they drove around Roger Dean Stadium about 1 PM and then began the loading process. We did not arrive until about 1:30, after driving around for what seemed like an hour looking for parking, which we finally secured. By then the team was by their transportation being unhitched and prepared for departure to their next location.

But, we found them! It took some walking and a bit of sleuthing, but we found the team being loaded into their palatial semis. We could not get close, but we could see them and watched as each of the magnificent horses was unhitched and led into the air conditioned trucks. It was a hot afternoon and I am sure that contributed to the confusion about how long they would be available for viewing by the adoring crowds. 

There was a lot of activity in Abacoa around Roger Dean Stadium. There was a Spring Training baseball game along with a concert on the commons; hence, parking was at a premium.

It was fun to see the team that we have watched in so many commercials for a beer that I do not drink. But, it seems like a piece of Americana, almost like a postcard.
