Beyond Van Gogh ... The Immersive Experience

Today Mary & I went to Beyond Van Gogh ... The Immersive Experience.

Mural on a nearby building.

Starry Night

Even the Van Gogh doll in the gift shop is missing an ear!

 Watch your step at Sweet Pete's.

 Old buildings in downtown JAX ...

Deck Renovation Causes Tennis Elbow!

Google on squirrel patrol.

Prying up floor boards is the brutal job this afternoon. It seems to cause really bad tennis elbow.

Stella doesn't mind napping amongst the debris on the pool deck (if you can find her).

At Costco Today

When I got back to my car after shopping at Costco, I found this glittery sandal on my side view mirror. 

Watching tv with Stella selfie. She's not usually a snuggler, so I had to document this special moment.

More Deck, Giant Tree & Carolina Jax

Mary fastens the composite floor boards on her deck.

We're about halfway done with the floor but there's a lot more work once we start the posts, etc.

Imagine if there was a sign 100 feet before every tree! ... unless it means the tree is 100 feet tall.

Lunch at Carolina JAX. Yum!!!

Deck Work After a 3 Week Break, etc.

Demo is definitely the hardest past of the job. Just ask Mary!

Saw horses at Lowe's.

Tightening the plank clips.

Bolting in a new sister joist.

Seen at Cracker Barrel ... Etch A Sketch ... NO WIFI NEEDED! Imagine that! LOL!

New Grill

My new Weber Spirit S-315 grill is ready for a BBQ.

Mary & I assembled it on the side patio. The yellow walls reflected in the stainless.

When It's Cold in Florida

I usually only drink iced lattes, it's definitely my drink of choice. But when it's too cold outside, I have to settle for hot.

Watching the 17th hole in the final round of THE PLAYERS Championship with an iced latte in my TPC Sawgrass 17th Hole Tervis Tumbler this afternoon. This sure beats running around the course carrying camera gear.

Last Day at Mistletoe State Park

It was a beautiful morning down by the water.

 Google wasn't interested in joining the group selfie pic.

Stella loves selfies!

Google likes picnic table selfies with Mary.

Beautiful campsite!
