    Dr. Bob's Folk Art

    Pay wave

    Stop there for a moment. On your right you will see Dr. Bob's sprawling art compound. The giant blinking arrow ensures you won't miss it, as do the spray-painted stencils of skeletons, fish, and other creatures along the sidewalk. If you somehow miss those, you might notice the creatures posted on poles across the street. How could you walk past a big pink gorilla happily impaled on a giant pole? You can enter the grounds and check out the gallery and shop if you are here between 10 and 5 any day of the week.

    The large gravel compound hosts many treasures, including the erratic Omar's field of doors and other salvaged household items for sale. You may even run into Dr. Bob himself in one of his work spaces. He can be a bit of a character, so if you want his opinion on something, be prepared for it. Remember: you asked!

    When you're ready, continue walking straight on this road. I'll be back at the next corner.
