Top Down from Up Top
Photo Location: Surfside Beach, TX 
Posted By: Sailor, 02-16-2016, 03:41 PM

We've had a wonderful winter here in SE Texas with plenty of blue skies and daily highs in the '70s F, and today I drove down to Surfside Beach - a barrier island - to enjoy a couple of cold beers and some warm, 80F sun on the raised deck of a bar I habituate a few times a year. Since I've photographed Surfside ad nauseam, I planned no photography but nevertheless grabbed my small LX100 which I've hardly touched since I got it for Christmas. Sitting on the sun-soaked deck with cold bottle in hand, it decided to snap a couple of shots of the roadster from my high vantage point - something I've done from the same spot at the same bar with various roadsters over the years.

Hey Jer,

70 degrees, cold beer and a nice ride.

Toss in some good health and it sounds like paradise to me.

I'll be looking for those signals, Capn - I'll also look for the red glint of a Solo cup!!!
