  1. Well, dammit, Mildred. I want to see that beautiful day in something besides tiny thumbnails. From what I can see, I know I want to be there. Is there a lot of the old architecture still around? How far away are you from the water?

    And what did you have for lunch?

  3. Jnuts, click on the thumbnails to enlarge them and then you can see them as a slide show. Yes, there is alot of old architecture around here and if you're a really good boy, I'll go take some pictures of it on Wednesday (my picture taking partner is off on Wednesday). Anything imparticular you want to see? Buildings? Houses? Other structures? I live a couple minutes from the water and my daughter lives only block away (I really hate her, but have to put up with her because she's my daughter) Knowing her she'll drop by to whine about living where they get flooded during hurricanes!

  4. Oooops! Lunch? I guess I'm worthless before noon, also. I had fresh seafood, of course! What else would one have?

  5. Looks nice. I have not been there since the early 1990s but it does not seem to have changed too much.

  6. Thanks, Mildred. At first, clicking on them did not bring up the slideshow so, apparently, my computer isn't worth anything before noon, as well.

    I guess the question about lunch WAS rather stupid. Hahahahaha.

    As for photos: I would love anything. I love old buildings and houses, lamp posts, anything historic, really. Surprise me.

  7. I particularly love that ornate building with all the fretwork, on the corner of Main. here, we tear down anything old enough to be of historic significance or interest.

  8. Laoch, progress is SLOW in these parts and I do love the quaintness of the area. We do however have a big maritime park going in on the water along Main Street. In it is a stadium for the Blue Wahoos (Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Red's).

    Jnuts, the building you talk about is in the style of buildings in the French Quarter in New Orleans and its influence can be seen all along the Gulf Coast. I hate when historic things are torn down instead of renovating/restoring them. With the exception of the San Carlos Hotel in downtown most everything else has been restored.
