Walkabout on Sunday was good, I got more color, but think I dodged the burn bullet again. The ball cap let my nose still get a little red, however.
I walked to Mizner Park, just to check out the place, and it’s fared for the worse. I used to live behind there, and liked it a lot… but now, there are no bookstores.. (liberties is gone!), the international museum of cartoon art has been gutted, and the two cool wacky-weirdo art stores have been absorbed by other type stuff. bleh.
I’d hoped to go to my old hangout, Beany’s, for a veggie-cheese sammich with the vinaigrette that I love so well… but sadly, it was closed, but just for Sundays.
I abandoned Boca’s blandness, and retreated to the bus stop (I was too bushed to walk for a bit), and rode back to Hillsboro… and then crossed over to the 94 and hit the Deerfield mall. I stopped off for a breather at the movies… caught “The Hills Have Eyes” and was surprised. It was better than I thought. (Make no mistake, it is about mutants killing people trapped in an out-of-the-way location, but it was done well for what it was.) Afterward, I stopped off at EB and picked up a copy of counterstrike:source on sale. I’m looking forward to playing multi with hav and kev once I polish my skills a bit.
Roaming area, (note, some was done by bus. I walked about another 8 miles.)
I made a lot of use of autostitch today, clicking on the pictures makes them larger, as usual.
Pictures from walkabout –
unicorn and a 3-story tower of teacups! at the Boca museum ‘f art.
Multi-colored turtle! I really liked this one, painted by a bunch of kids.
Walking away from Mizner park, looking for Boca comics. never found it.
Fine shoes… but what cost? YOUR SOUL??
Went to See “The Hills Have Eyes” – Surprisingly effective horror flick. done better than I was expecting.
Hand painted dolphin, with shells guled on for patterns. done by kids.
Another painted dolphin. groovy. 😀
closed due to hurricane… 4-5 mos later??
The auditorium was setting up for a stage show of the big comfy couch. Not my loonette, some blond gal was doing a rehearsal while I was there. She had a good voice.
Shamrock Shakes are back! (and Matt’s got a review that’s great, as usual)
