Buttonwood Sundown

A few years back, after a couple of hours on the road coming back from Key West and being hungry, I turned into the driveway at Bayside Grille in Key Largo which looks out northwest toward Buttonwood Sound and Swash Keys. After a nice meal it seemed like a good opportunity to stroll around and see what the sights might be. The Grille restaurant was on the second floor and after a few shots there, …

TPC San Antonio, home of the Valero Texas Open

  Original Article 24 Jun 2012 (there is 1 update below):  I had the opportunity to stay at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa in December of 2011, which is the setting for TPC San Antonio, including the AT&T Oaks Course where they play the Valero Open. From what I saw firsthand of the golf course, which I’ll admit wasn’t much, nothing looked easy on this course.  

How to get a picture of a girl at the beach

St. Leo Abbey

  You don’t have to travel to Europe or South America to visit a monastery or abbey. I don’t know how many there are in the US, probably quite a few, but I found one. By accident. I was riding around the north Tampa area in Pasco County with a friend when I happened to see almost the exact scene below, so I had him turn around.

Art Deco gallery addition

  Updated 5 June 2013: A previous category of images, Art Deco, needed to be changed to Art Deco and Art Moderne due to some items I added from a small town in Tennessee, the Roxy Regional Theater in Clarksville. I’ve also added a few Art Deco images and it’s up to eight now but I’ll be adding more Miami Beach/South Beach images when I can. Thanks for visiting, Ed SOCIAL MEDIA & ONLINE PRESENCE: ARTICLES | ABOUT | TWITTER | …

How to get to Fisher Island, Miami

  To get to Fisher Island just take the Fisher Island Ferry. It departs the terminal on the MacArthur Causeway, at the east side near Miami Beach, every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day. It takes a few minutes to get there but it’s like going to a different world, a retreat with luxurious old-world style.
