Thanks! This was an incredible trip. With all the money flying into high end BDX at the moment, the money people are putting into their properties is nuts-- A ton of new construction underway as well...

Great pix Hardy. Thanks.

I'm curious as to the use of the lamp-shade shaped stainless tanks. Does anyone know the reason for this ?

Looks like my cellar except my barrels hover above the ground, lifted aloft on real angels' wings.
