The Calm During The Storm!


Grey sky no flights today

We popped down to the show location to capture the scene on a grey gloomy day. Good news is the docks are going in, and the sky is clearing up. This morning is already nice and blue. There have been some wonderful changes at the show location. And the show area is beautiful.

Backing up to install the docks

Raindrops and flags

The docks, they work better in the water.

Fly by! Boats in yet? We need to poop!

Don’t see this everyday?

Raindrops keep falling on my head!

The Show location!

Workers, working in the rain! The Show Must Go On!


Grey and Orange..s

Have a seat..Plane!

Tents are up..ish

Getting ready

Someone is always on the phone!

Docks getting done fast

Oh ya.

Don’t mess with this guy!

Ready! Ahhhhhhhh!

Getting un packed


New roads! Wonderful!

Who needs boats?

I am not sure what these are? They call them flowers, and they bloom in the warm air. Been so long since I have seen some, I forgot.

There is only one way to go this weekend. FLA!

The Green smile! Ahhhhh!

Things are getting ready fast, folks are arriving today! Are you?

      Hi Scott and Linda,
      The boat looks beautiful. Are you guys in Florida for the winter or did you make the long trip just for the show? Anyway, hope you had a great time.

    So is the garbage bag a-la duct tape a Florida rain coat? Maybe it never rains in Florida, no wait, that’s southern California.
