Backyard Oasis

 

OMG!!! We finally had a beautiful day of nothing but sunshine. After a long bike ride to Audubon Park, we hightailed it to BFF Rollie’s home to lounge by his amazing pool.

Rollie is a local vet and has been a great friend to J & I for many years. He is one of the nicest, accommodating, and generous guys around. It has been a while since we swam in his pool, so we were eager to “get our feet wet” once again.

The setting of his backyard oasis is spectacular. Set amongst live oaks, yews, and palm trees, the backyard feels of a five-star resort.

Take a look at this backyard oasis:

  10. Gorgeous. If I ever ran into you on the street, I would only recognize you from your feet dangling in the sand or over a pool!!!

  11. Ron, Rollie's yard is beautiful! I love the tropical foliage and the pool looks inviting. It has been 90+ degrees here since March and a pool would be wonderful.
