HAPPY 4th of JULY!

Well it has been a long time since I last posted!  The show is going well, it airs NEXT SUNDAY...July 11th, at 10pm on A&E.  It is called "THE GLADES".
South Florida is beautiful and very exciting.  Their is an amazing cultural diversity here, and although I am sure there are gangs, etc, the blending and acceptance of differences is inspiring.  There is SO MUCH to see and do...when i have any free time, that is...
The weather here, however, SUCKS BOULDERS!   It is hot hot hot, and even worse - HUMID- gross humid.  When we work outside you can count on sweat literally running off your face..and down your butt crack...like you poured hot slimy water over your head.....pointless to even THINK about wearing make-up...and your hair gets all frizzy ........and you have to drink A LOT of water to stay hydrated....your clothes stick to you, and then we blow wind and debris for the scenes and you get that stuck all over you too.  You go home totally grungy and disgusting.
Now I can see why people like to vacation here for THE WINTER.
The ocean water is NOT refreshing...it's too hot!
...but there are wonderful corals and shells and rocks to collect on the beach.
...and weird snail shells.....and everywhere are all kinds of lizards...even giant 2 foot ones. We even worked at a park that had wild MONKEYS in the trees!
Here are a few pics from the filming the other night.  We were blowing up a house...actually we dressed the windows and door to look blown up, and then we just made a big fireball and blew debris out the window.  It was way cool.

My Key 2nd Assistant took this video.  Here are some pics I took.
we used a lot of smoke and it was way ethereal......

Today we were going to have a beach party/barbeque - but it has been rainy.thunderstorms all day.  Not the typical sporadic rain then sunshine - nope, overcast and hard rain!  So the party's been moved indoors...but I am content to stay cozy in my condo and catch up on my emails and blogging...and perhaps some photoshop art......a glass of  wine, candles, music and a bath...aaaaah.
Hopefully it will clear up enough for fireworks on the beach...

Great post Connie! Love the video and great pictures, too! Enjoy the beach party; I haven't been to one of those in ages :) Oh; it is VERY hot here, too. We will be in the high 90's, all this week, with oppressive humidity. :( Good to read your post today! xxoo

Hey, Connie, it's in the 90s and humid in Michigan : )

Isn't blowing up things one of your specialties (didn't you do it on Jericho?). Becky is up here from St Petersburg for the week and she isn't missing Florida weather at all.

I will watch out for your show on Sunday.
