Photo du Jour: Santa's Wish List Along a Foggy 17th Street Canal


Santa's Wish List stands in the yard of a home along the 17th Street Canal on Bellaire Drive very close to the breach site. From periodically going to the breach for the past 15 months, this family was among the first back on Bellairie and certainly also among the first to permamently return to Lakeview. Their house and yard look perfect to the point where it appears nothing ever happened--but that illusion is shattered by looking across the street.
