you do travel in style, and rub elbows (docks) with the high-brow crowd! :)

Lavender Dreams

Wow....that's the life! There's always so much fun living here in the sunshine state! Enjoy your week my friend! Pick me up the next time you go! heehee!


Glad you enjoyed the theatre. The trip sounds magical as we freeze in the UK, and trudge along muddy footpaths!!!

Boating to the theatre, how cool is that! Sallie, anyone who leaves a comment on my GYB post is entered for my giveaway. It's not meant just for that specific party, so your name is in the hat!


What fun to go boating to the theatre. I love the contrast in the monster boats and normal ones.


What a great way to get to travel! I saw Arsenic and Old Lace, years ago at the theatre, I loved it.


Ah, you do have fun, Sallie!! I love it and I'm so glad that you share the fun with us!! Great pics for the day! Hope you have a great week!

Oh … what great fun to float to a live performance of one of the best classics ever imo. Cannot even image, though, who would ever fill the shoes of Cary Grant!


Life aboard a boat has on occasion had an appeal for me. Today, not so much, but I sure wouldn't mind tooling around the Ft. Myers area, taking in a play and munching down at the local restaurants. You are fortunate. No snow to worry about, either.

I'd guess that the WSJ did an article because many of its writers and patrons have moved south for the winter! :)


Ah, what a good life! Boating to the theater. :) Sounds so fun. Love the sparkles on the water in the 3rd shot.

seems like fun. And a nice place for the boat. I have seen the play in Sweden long ago. :)


How fun, to boat to the theater and hang out with the big boys at the dock! I love Arsenic and Old Lace.


Sallie, sounds like a fun time! Boating to the theater, seeing the play and hanging out with the rich & famous or their yachts..Enjoy your week ahead!


What a way to travel. Sounds like a great evening.

Pretty funny one with the smaller boat next to that big yacht. Their dinghy is probably bigger than my house as well. Cute shots.


Neat looking place, I'd take that dingy :)


That's a rough life you have!


That's a new one - avoid the traffic. Great idea and a fun post!


Florida is ana amazing place!


"Boating to the theater" - how cosmopolitan that sounds, and to have a berth next to such a big boat, Sallie. How fun. Arsenic and Old Lace is such a wonderful play that has stood the test of time. I'm smiling just thinking about your fun.


Wonderful place. am sure you had a great time there.

What a wonderful experience! And it looks so lovely and warm!

What a great way to travel!

I've been to the top of Mt. St. Helens - it was so misty I could not even see the end of my own nose! But the road stopped, so it must have been the top!

First off, the experience of going to the theatre is amazing in itself, but getting there by boat, just adds so much more drama to the scene!

Lovely photos of your beautiful surroundings!



Got any room for me??? I am way tired of this winter. It is snowing again. Palm Beach was such a nice LITTLE town (back then there were no stop lights) to grow up in. I will gladly take Fort Myers. Loved your going by boat to Arsenic and Old Lace. That is my favorite movie. The slips look like the ones on Lake Worth. Nice little slots for big and little boats. Loved your post.


That would be fun going to the theatre by boat. It is dwarfed by your neighbour's boat though.You have reminded me that i haven't been to the theatre for ages. used to afford a yearly subscription when I was working but gave that up when i retired sadly.


By boat ! What a wonderful and funny way to go to the theater ! Today, here, it would be skying, we'd have to go there !


Boat to lunch.... Sigh... I need snow shoes


Dearest Sallie;
Great Way to go to the theater, isn't it♡♡♡ I first learned the word "dinghy" p;) Ideal way of spend a day; wish I could have join you and enjoy the "Arsenic and Old Lace", no idea about that oldie (you call) but may be enjoyable way to hear English☆☆☆

PS> So sorry for my absence for a while again. As yeaster was my father's 89th birthday, I have visited my father's empty house and grave. I offered flower at both places. I'm sure he is happy to see me on his birthday(*^_^*)

Sending you lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
