Village Walk

Adam burst a tire on his bike, so we took a walk one evening instead.

a very fun local porch
A lovely old home being raised after the hurricane -- three years later!
I love how they've kept the wicker furniture on the porch.
boat decor in a front yard ... a bit past its prime
distinctive artwork on our beloved old theatre
new roof and marquis at the theatre - nice work!
Many sailors have found this true.
Lots of rain in recent weeks have made for soggy bottoms.
The lady who lives next to this area feeds the turtles each evening, I've heard.
A large turtle is beneath this slurry, but I couldn't get him to show his head again.
The boat below has been sunk in Whittaker Creek for at least a year. I don't know how it ended up that way -- a hurricane maybe? Folks have come and stripped it of all hardware, even the mast. But somebody decided it was worth raising again. (They put large inflatable balloon-like things in the boat, fill them with air, and get the boat to float that way.) I wonder what will be done with it now?
And ... an update on the cute little cabin in town! It's looking like a real house now. Windows in! Siding on and painted! The porches are coming along.

Last night's sunset was spectacular. Here's a series of photos, progressively closer to the ball of fire ~

  2. Ah, sunsets. They never get old. I love the little tan cottage with all the different roof angles. It looks so cozy! Your theater reminds me of one I went to as a child in Lake Jackson, TX. Have a wonderful Sunday!
