Deck the Chairs on the Beach
ON our way through Jacksonville Beach, Florida, we stumbled across an odd holiday tradition. In the square that leads to the beach, local companies have decorated lifeguard chairs with various themes.
While our main objective in coming to Jacksonville Beach, Florida was to check out the beach (more on that later), we stumbled across quite the funky holiday tradition at Latham Plaza, Deck the Chairs.
Adjacent to the beach, local companies have gathered together to celebrate the holiday spirit by decorating lifeguard chairs in various themes. At night, it must be pretty spectacular all lit up, but during the day it’s pretty entertaining aw well. With themes ranging from Harry Potter (complete with the Sorting Hat and Hedwig) to a Star Wars AT-AT to the expected Santa lounging in a lifeguard chair, it was fun to tour this unexpected salute to the holidays.
With several stops still remaining in the day, we didn’t stay too long, but definitely spent a few moments enjoying the funky artwork. It’s hidden surprises like this that make our road trips such a blast, and, while this was far from the last surprise on this trip, it was definitely a pleasant surprise.
