there was a wooden bench worn by the wind ...

When we had visitors from Illinois, we, of course, went to the beach. Buffett recently opened his hotel. So...we took an impromptu tour. Wonderful hotel. If you are familiar with the decorating style from Duh, then you know what the hotel looks like.


There were several little nooks and crannies to sit and reflect. On whatever you need to reflect on. There was a lovely pool. But, more importantly, there were beautiful blue and aqua pool side lounge chairs just begging to be photographed. So I did. I took pictures of those and several other beautiful things. A bookcase, shutters, benches, rattan chairs. All with a soft, worn, aged look.
