I have wanted to happily share our vacation photos as soon as we returned from Florida. However, I am dependent on my husband to review each one, photoshop at will, then downsize to a reasonable number of pixels that will work in a blog or email. So far he's done two. I don't know how to find the photos on his computer because he has hundreds of files. And I wouldn't know how to downsize them anyway so...I wait.
In the meantime, here are three photos of the home we rented on the island. They call it "Sunfish". I captured them from the vacation rental site. The house was an old beach ranch, circa 1950's. The owner did a remarkable re-hab. He split the house into two condos then renovated top to bottom. He took out the low 8' ceilings and created vaulted ceilings. He put nicely turned crown molding and framed molding throughout; 12" x 12" Mexican pavers for the flooring, new textured wallboard painted a caramel color; Mexican tile in the bathrooms. Our side was 3 BR, 2 1/4 BA; very spacious with a nice flow-through floor plan. The pool above is on the other side of the house. It's shared with the 2BR 2 BA condo. Everything was new and clean and beautiful. He even built a rooftop deck with a view to the ocean. It is a little piece of heaven on a heavenly little isle.
