Pumping concrete

Things have changed since the days of chutes and wheelbarrows.

Waiting for the fireworks

It's been almost a month since my last post. The good news is we survived the move but are far from settled. We are living in a sea of brown cardboard boxes for now but making progress. I finally got my computer back up... now if only I could find my computer glasses so I did not have to tilt my neck north.

We did take some time to see fireworks as is our tradition (I met my wife on a July 4th weekend many years ago). We had a great spot on Jacksonville beach near the pier. Unfortunately the weather changed very quickly and two minutes before show time the sky opened up and the rain and wind ensued. It was a mad dash to the car but by then the rain had slowed so we watched from the comfort of the car (if sitting in drenched clothing is considered comfortable). But the view was not bad and we felt we had taken part in something that was part of our new community.

Last walk on the canal

The process of moving is never easy. In many ways it seems to have taken forever, and in some ways it has come too fast.

Our last PODS is packed and to be picked up in the morning.

But this afternoon I had a chance to take one last walk along the Erie canal. I have posted many photos from the paths of the canal and I will miss it when we are gone, but in consolation, we will be only a few miles from the ocean.

Change can be good.

Turned on

Hedonist Artisan Chocolates, a great shop in Rochester if you get turned on by chocolate.
