Object in photo you won't find in Ottawa, Canada: an outdoor fireplace

Yeah, this is one of those places in the U.S. where during the day the weather is great, but it drops in temperature fast enough once the sun sets that it just gets uncomfortable unless you want to throw on a jacket. I think this is a nice compromise... ;-)

I've spent a fair amount of time in Florida, been to the Northern States (VT,NH,Maine,etc) several times skiing/boarding - they are close enough by car.  Boston, MA for LibrePlanet a few times.  California, once for a week or two as a teen.

But I've never been to Texas... :(  I hear things are bigger down there ;)

We do have outdoor firepits, and quasi-fireplace in some cases, but I've never seen something I'd call a "fire place" like you've got there - very cool!

This is actually in Santa Barbara, CA. :-) My wife and I would **like** to have a fireplace like this in our back yard in Texas, though!
