, JeffK and
I met to take even more pictures of enlightened palms. Driving around
looking for a good place to photograph, we came across a small park just
south of Mizner Park
(a shopping center) in Boca Raton
. We parked the car
about a block away and I proceeded to take numerous pictures. In the middle
was an interesting abstract sculpture that was a nice focal point to some of
the photographs. While we were there, Kelly
called and we convinved him to drive
out and meet us.
After a few hours, we decided to move on and as we drove past Mizner Park
itself, we realized it was a terrific place to take pictures. By then I had
run out of battery power, so Kelly and I went off to a local 7-11 to get
more batteries while Mark and JeffK waited at Mizner Park for our return.
As we drove back, a security guard started following us, so we decided it
wasn't worth the possible problems; it was after 1:00 am and Mizner Park
is considered private property. At this point, Mark and Jeff felt
it was late enough and since they had to work the next morning, decided to
bail out. Kelly and I continued driving around, but there weren't any
places as impressive as Mizner Park, although I did take quite a few
pictures from the front seat.
Around 3:30 am Kelly and I were both hungry, so we drove to a diner he knew
of in Ft. Lauderdale; it looked closed as we drove up to it, but it turned
out that the signage was being worked on. Afterwards Kelly dropped me off,
then he himself went home.
I finally received the books from
and those crazy Canucks, using duct tape
and foreign newspapers to
So now it's time to hunker down and learn all there is about genetic
algorithms, Lisp (both Scheme and Common Lisp) and Rebol. Fun fun fun.
