    Just found your blog now and loved how you have captured that southern sense of light (so unOntario) as well as the culture. From the La Reynera projecting a feeling of nostalgia and cleverly reinforced by painting the fellow slouched on the bench outside, to the breathtaking Galvez Hotel where you can almost hear the waves softly lapping against the beach. A few years ago, Terry and I saw a similar structure (probably modelled after the Galvez) built in the 1920’s on the edge of a golf course in Sebring and it stood sadly vacant. However, to artists these old buildings are so much more interesting than new ones, as they project layers of history into our present day.
