Jacksonville Florida Skyline

Our Outback and Townhouse

This is the townhouse that we bought when we came to Florida, an end unit, bordering the trees. It is a three bedroom, three bathroom, up/down house. That's our northern kitchen and dining room windows. That's also our Subaru Outback.
Pictures of our new Florida house are here.

This is a picture of our living room with furniture taken from the 2nd Floor balcony and us in the living room.
