Casa Feliz – Winter Park, FL

with 6 comments

Casa Feliz, a Spanish style masonry farmhouse complete with bell tower, arched doorways,  and courtyards,is a prime example of the work of designer James Gable Rogers II, Winter Park’s best known architect.  For over 60 years, his prolific work helped to define the unique residential character of Winter Park.  Rogers is also known as the architect of other Florida landmarks including the Florida State Supreme Court Building in Tallahassee.

The painstakingly refurbished home is now open as a museum on Sundays from 12-3.

Classy little place

with one comment

There’s this classy little courtyard off Park Avenue in Winter Park FL.  The times that I’ve passed it, I wished I’d had my camera with me.  I got a shot of it last week and thought I’d post it along with a couple of other jewels from the Winter Park streets.

Jags – preview

with 4 comments

I stopped by Collier Jaguar in Orlando today – just to get some shots of the new Jags on display.  There were a handsome xfr and xk models on the floor.  This photo is just a preview for now.  I’ll get more of the text and credits in order then post the whole thing – along with some of the classic jags and comments.  In the meantime – enjoy this cat.

Welcome Matthew Gregory —-

with 7 comments

Matthew Gregory was born on June 30th at approximately 9:50 AM at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Children and Women in Orlando.  He carried in his own refrigerator – weighing 10 lbs 2 oz (without the football gear).

He has lots of family features – I can see some of his Dad in him – and lots of his sister Ella.  The family will be coming home on Friday.

It's me!

It's me!

Winter Park Country Club

 

The WPCC is the second oldest golf club in the Central Florida area. The course makes its way through the downtown Winter Park area and provides a challenge to even the most experienced golfer. The clubs history includes play by the likes of Hogan, Snead, Sarazen and Hagen. With its narrow, tree-lined fairways and postage stamp, bunker guarded greens, this course will provide a test for every shot in a golfers arsenal.

 

Play is based upon first availability. Daily fees start at $13.00 to walk 9 holes during the winter season and $12.00 during the summer season.
