  • Great post here, Renee, I just love this sort of thing! What an interesting back-story here, my friend, I am literally one flipper away from jumping in the convertible and heading down your way to check this out! :)

    • As always, your comments are most appreciated, Toad. Yes, I understand the urge to jump into a convertible and go road-tripping. So many cool places to photograph.
