Jen: this is so cool.
I love the rhythm of the umbrellas and the colors really sparkle. This one took a lot of work.
Enjoyed very much. I want to be there and order a martini.

Thanks Keyek praise for sure from a Texan!
Ruthie, thanks. That would be fun wouldn't it! Hmm San Antonio Texas home of the Alamo and the River Walk. How to get there from you? Probably LHR to Dallas, then fly or drive to San Antonio. I can guarantee that it will be warmer!
Fred, thanks for dropping by.
