Chairs of Summer, PV Beach

For most people in the U.S. and Europe, August represents the last hot days of summer. Here in sub-tropical Florida August serves to introduce us to September............or..........more of the same. We will have at least three weeks more of 90f (32.2c) weather and then the relief starts to set in. Having been in Provence on September 1st, I was amazed that all the summer clothes were gone on the 1st and Autumnal colors were everywhere. Here we stick to pastels until it really cools off, in October.

Photo shoot, PV Beach.

My walking partner john, in the yellow shirt, and I came upon this little group on the beach. We got no explanation as to the purpose. The younger girl looked serious, must be an art major.

Three recent meals

 This was a fish taco wrap at Beachside Seafood in Jax Beach. About 75% fish and wonderful.
 These are soft shelled crabs and scallops from Beachside Seafood that I brought home and sauteed in oil with Old Bay blackening seasoning. Crispy and sweet.
These were chicken tenderloins and sliced green tomatoes that I grilled last week. The tomatoes were a surprise as they lost a lot of their tartness when grilled.

Another fine example of the good taste and decorum rampant in our society:-)

Red and green, Nocatee

This is a utility marker for some future electric service.

Our Provencal curtains put on a light show in the morning.

Dagwood's funnel cakes, Nocatee market

The Nocatee market has gotten quite good. Less junky trinkets and more produce and artisan cheeses, fresh eggs, pickles and, of course, junk food. Delia and I scored some great boiled peanuts.


Apparently missed an important call.
