A little vacation in our little town…

I told you before, that we live in a small city…or more like a small town

And we are graced with a delectable little art museum

On a recent day

we visited and saw the work of William Wegman…And his gorgeous weimeramers

Fay Ray and pals…remember them?

I always think Of Melissa at Handwork Chronicles when I see them…she has a real life yellow eyed model

lucky her.

But the work was just too adorable and thought provoking not to

Visit if you are near…

Walk on the wild side…sneak your camera in no flash .

Yay for Weimaraners!!! I have several of his books (I get all weepy every time I look at the Puppies book!) but have never seen his art in person. Lucky you! And thanks for sneaking your camera in there for me. :D

I love when you take us around your gorgeous town. Vero Beach is on my list! Am looking for the "perfect" beach town to move to in the hopefully not so far future! Want to escape the cold temps eventually, haha!!!!

Such a pretty building...love his books!

I'm gonna have to visit here during my next trip to Vero. This museum looks so interesting! We rarely play tourist when we're there. Instead we spend all the time catching up with our friends.

I LOVE Vero Beach. My husband and I would always go to the Driftwood Inn for brunch whenever we visited his family in Ft. Pierce. This routine began 36 years ago. It has changed a lot...but it's still a favorite location.

I think Weimeraners are just the most beautiful dogs, and I am SO not a dog person. Thanks for sneaking some pics for us....I'm glad you didn't get arrested! Ha!

Great tip for visiting museums...although I'm afraid I'm too unadventurous to do such a thing...oh maybe I can ask my son to do the job:)
