That was one fast week! I got back from my trip on Wednesday. I think. The days are just flying by and I’m not sure what day it is. I had a great time visiting the family. Got to hug on my great nephews a bit. I miss my boys being that little and huggable.
The 7 hour drive down to Clearwater was a bit long. It was just me and #3 son. Oh and Henry. We were all there for my niece's graduation. On the way home I drove to my sister’s house in Jacksonville to break it up. Okay, and to play with the little guys a bit more.
I’ll share a few pictures of her house that is on the Arlington River. You can read more about it’s history here. It’s the oldest lived in home in Duval county. There are some shots here that my son took a couple of Thanksgivings ago. And some here from another visit I made.
There are some huge old oak trees on the property that are just dripping with Spanish moss.
The porch ceiling are all painted blue. You can see the front porch that wraps around 3 sides in the other photos. Actually I guess it’s the back. The front is originally the river side as it was the only access to the house.
This is the original well. They found a bunch of neat old bottle down there. The top is screened off so no falling down the well.
Next visit I will take some indoor shots. There are a few in some of the links. But not enough details.
I hope you all are enjoying your summer breaks. But I guess some of you are just starting with winter! So stay warm. I say that as my AC is running non stop.
I need to get back in the swing of things around here. Lots to catch up on too. My reader is ready to explode. Time to get the paint out. I’m missing the smell and I’m itching for some new colors. What have you been working on?
