Villages' Visitors - Day 26

"Back where I come from there are men who do nothing all day but good deeds. They are called phila... er, phila... er, yes, Good Deed Doers."--The Wizard of Oz

The Villages is a growing population of more than 89,000 people. People from all over the world make their home here, as well as pay a visit.

The photos I snapped today were taken at Sumter Square of the many Villages' Visitors who are paying a visit this Holiday week.

Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed snapping them.

Until this time next time.

See you in print,
