My Best Shot

I live in Edgewater and recently visited Texas, where I spotted this windmill in Hutto, near Austin. The sun was rapidly setting, and I was barely able to run up to the windmill in time to get this photo. The high school in Hutto is known for its hippo mascot. The town is known for its painted, concrete hippo statues in front of schools, government buildings and businesses.
