This year we decided to hit the beach after a 3 year hiatus. From the time Cari and I started our family, the beach has always been our favorite family retreat. In the early years we spent many summer vacations on Galveston Island. Yes the water is murky, the sand is brown and it smells like fish... but we loved it. In the early 2000's we decided to go to visit Destin, FL. Wow, what a difference that was from our coast. It was very reminiscent of the Caribbean, where you have white sands and clear waters. This year we decided to see how similar Gulf Shores, AL was to that of Destin. We were very impressed as it was vey close to how Destin looked. We highly recommend visiting this location. Here are a few images I captured during our stay in Gulf Shores.

Two years ago I was looking through all of the amazing old photos taken around Weatherford. It was awesome to see horse drawn carriages traveling through our town square, early model cars and what the buildings looked like in those early days. Many of the original structures were ravaged by fire but some still stand tall today in original form. I felt inspired to recreate some of these old photos and give a 'Then & Now' comparison. It is surreal to stand in exactly in the same location that the original photo was taken. Here's a look back into the past of historic downtown Weatherford, Texas. The fourth video in the 'Then & Now' series will give you a small sample of what Weatherford was like in the early & mid 1900's.
