 I drove around Immokalee, a farm community an hour east of Naples.

There was a staring contest on the road into town.

There is either a new sign welcoming visitors and new arrivals, or  a sign I didn't notice before.

A wonderful tile mural fills the front of the Rollason Center, which serves both as the headquarters of the Redlands Christian Migrant Association and the daycare, school and aftercare facility for the children of the many migrants who work the fields.

I had never before visited the simple Immokalee Pioneer Museum at Roberts Ranch.

I really like that mosaic mural, Jack.

Beautiful mural of tiles...I'm so glad to see them celebrating the immigrants, many of whom were illegals who came to help with crops...tomatoes maybe and strawberries. Though maybe they are more in Ruskin FL.

Most impressive tile mural, a fine work of art. The cows were curious about what you were doing. They likely don't see many photographers.
