Celebrating the Familiar...

That's what artist Seward Johnson said about his Sculpture Exhibit...
"I am celebrating the life habits that keep us in good health, 
both physically and mentally.
These moments, when we take the time to slow down and appreciate them, are treasures."

The following 14 sculptures are on display in downtown
Historical Spring Lake
one of my very favorite sea shore towns.
So pick up a map, in any one of the cute shops and we will wander around 
being sure not to miss any!
