Today was my first ride in Tracie's swanky massage mobile & it did not disappoint! My favorite part was how the seat hugs you every time you turn.

So many massage options ...

Lunch at the French Pantry. The Chicken & Mozzarella Bruschetta is always amazing!

Thanksgiving 2012

Rob, Stella & I went to Tracie & Orland's house for Thanksgiving with Adam & Olivia.

One of 2 turkeys

Everything was yummy! Tracie & Orland had a stuffing competition.

Homemade coconut creme pie

14-flavor cheesecake

Stella was on pool patrol at dusk.

Playdate with Cora

Stella always has a blast when Cora comes over!

What, me worry?

The NuLu

The new TacoLu opened in JAX Beach today at the site of the old Homestead.

I went there a few times with Anna in September & October while the Nu Lu was being built out.

A mural was being painted on the back outside dining patio.

Detail of one of the lights that was getting unpacked.

Looking good!

Rust Never Sleeps ... I couldn't think of a title, so why not a tribute to Neil Young?

Stella loves comfort! Spoiled? Maybe just a little.

I've been driving past this old decrepit, rusty sign on the way to work every day. It's set back from the road in an apartment complex parking lot. I can't believe I never noticed it before!

Rust & peeling paint ... 2 of my favorite things to shoot!

Hurricane Sandy Aftermath

On October 29th, 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit Catalina Beach Club in Atlantic Beach, NY. With all of the devastation in NY & NJ, the damage to Catalina really hit home. The club has been part of my family since 1944 ... way before I was born.

My cousins Helaine & Andrea went there a few days after the storm to take some pix. They did a great job!

Despite the devastation depicted below, they started rebuilding soon after Sandy hit. They'll be opening on Memorial Day for the 2013 season, their 69th year.

The southwest corner of the pool deck collapsed ...

but Oceanview was unharmed.
