Paragliding over Jax Beach

It was a gorgeous fall afternoon at the beach. We stopped in at Jax Beach pier, to just spend a few minutes soaking in the sunshine and the weekend ambiance. This weather is great for so many things.  There are still those who’re willing to swim – even skinning it in the ocean whose temps […]

Heaven Couldn’t Wait

I’ve watched a community grieve online twice, in the past year or so.

The Last Acoustic Night of 2011

Family Movie Night At Atlantic Beach Elementary School

Last night about 75 families with kids at Atlantic Beach Elementary (ABE) gathered outside the school, spread the blankets or beach towels on the ground (or maybe a comfy beach chair, just sayin’) and waited till the sun went down and the stars came out.  The family-friendly movie Rio was shown on the giant screen […]
