Jax beach

The calendar says autumn, yet the beach says summer... but then this is Florida.

Stop and smell the roses

Even robots need to take time to appreciate the nice things in the world.

This large sculpture stands in the parking lot of Meow Wolf, a expansive and unique art installation in Santa Fe.

When sunflowers almost make your home invisible.

During my days in Santa Fe I spent quite a bit if time walking the streets exploring and photographing and saw mostly earthy brown buildings, so it was almost a surprise to see this white-washed structure... a bit of variety.

My hotel

Maybe I am posting too many images from Santa Fe but it is a really and interesting town. We stayed at the La Fonda right on the old Santa Fe plaza. The hotel is historic having being built in the '20s, but compared to the native pueblos in the area, it is a modern youngster. Those pueblos are several thousand years old!

Having said that La Fonda has been updated, restored and thoughtfully modernized and is indeed a first class operation even though it looks like it could have been standing for much longer than it has. It is filled with amazing original and authentic art.

An example of how much effort has been made to keep it looking authentic... here is a photo of part of the hotel, but the structure in the foreground is actually a parking garage.
