    A couple of recent edits. First, Villa Borghese in Rome. The god Apollo turning Daphne into a bush. Of course there's also a real group of bushes whose scientific name is Daphne.
    Backyard, bromeliad 'Little Harv' flowering.

Recent re-edit of a Wedge photo. Not entirely sure I like the shiny look of the wetsuit and the face may be over-processed, too.
Here's the full image, also recently re-edited for better contrast.

    Yucca's selling "creamsicle" fins. The in-house padding isn't available in Gator blue. Nor Carolina blue. Aqua or navy.
      Useful sticker for a two-stringer board.
    The new board
    As you can tell from the checked boxes, it's pretty basic except for 2 stringers. Cheap slick on the bottom.

A real, cheap Japanese woodcut print from somewhere in the 1800s, not a reprint (note the fold lines). It shows a traditional snow party, but with a revolutionary innovation: thanks to imported Dutch books, Japanese artists had learned European perspective and quickly enjoyed using it. This print is an excuse to play with perspective.

A bit of fun. I spotted a ghostly pattern on a sidewalk, obviously made by a pressure washer with something serving as a mask.
    Here was the mask, a door mat.

At beaches, look for beach stars. They spread by underground stems toward the ocean; they're in the first row of plants onshore. Cyperus pedunculatus, found on tropical beaches worldwide. In Florida, the northern range limit was in Indian River Co., but it's been collected at Patrick in recent years.

The bodyboarding Hubbard brothers' business, Hubboards, has a new color for one of its staples: swim fin pad/tether. The tether snaps locked and free with a little plastic closure on each foot. Insert and press to lock, press both sides of the closure and pull to unlock. Fast and easy.

    In Fort Pierce, the Heathcote Garden of Lights is materializing. Mostly Friday and Saturday, starting the day after Thanksgiving.

    What you clean a beach with. Sea grapes weren't bothered by the Nicole salt spray. A few days later, Vero South Beach was immaculate.

Thanks. I can walk over to a good microbrewery from my house. There was really good luck with pretty cheap travel over the last few years. Been busy lately, so not many chances for beach photos.

    Surf mat maker in Paso Robles. T-shirt from Yucca Swim Fins, which of course go with surf mats (which in turn are having a bit of revival). A coral rock bench and whatnot (the corals are plastic foam) turned into a reef at Heathcote Botanical Gardens
    One of Yucca's many nutty t-shirt images. The little NO BBQ sticker on the boat is presumably a reference to Tim Burnham, film maker (Dirty Old Wedge and Part of Water, a tribute to Ben Carlson, the Newport Beach lifeguard who drowned in the line of duty).

    The final version was pretty easy to manufacture, but it took endless fussing to figure out how to colorize stuff painted in fluorescent paint and glowing under the (unintentionally) ultraviolet light from cheap LED spotlights that are supposed to be "blue".

More Heathcote. I've had very limited time for photos.
This photo's gotten a lot of looks at Flickr. Thanks.

    Heathcote Gardens again. Open Thursday and Friday before New Year. The big alligator looked out of place y last year's "stream" on the main lawn. Right at home in the Forest, next to a tiny artificial creek.
    Gator's head.
