Sounds like "work ahead"


When we lived in Ft. Lauderdale, we'd visit southwest Florida often and have stayed on Ft. Myer's beach on several occasions. I even remember when it wasn't so crowded. The last few times we were there the traffic was backed up from the bridge for 4-5 miles!


Ha! I like the title of this "boat-by", that's very creative of you Sallie.

Thank you Sallie for the right information. I should learn more about the USA,


They all look beautiful! I'm betting that living that close to the water is pretty pricey.

Great photos! We have friends from Fort Meyers visiting us now. Great place I hear.


Hi Sallie, Thanks for stopping by.
I love viewing homes from a boat and imagining what they look like inside; there is such a variety to see.

The pelicans make quite a group, they call attention to the sign very well!


Fantastic photos:) Greetings

Certainly a colourful, multi-styled living area by the water! Love the light too!


Hi there - I wonder what abnormal unsafe operations for a pelican are?? Diving into concrete?

PS: Very nice picture - even if my comment is silly!

I sometimes forget that the USA is so large and not just one country, but a collection of many countries, like we have here in Europe . The only difference is, that everybody speaks English in the USA, whereas every country in Europe has its own language and own culture!
Your photos were taken in California, weren't they?
Thanks for your visit.


Forgot to say I LOVED your title! Touche!


The colors of the buildings and the chairs and the pink railing in that one shot sure speak warm climate and happy times.
I remember when my son went to Florida on a school orchestra trip he came back in awe of the pastel color. When he got off the bus he saw me wearing pastel colors and laughed. :)

It looks heavenly!


What a lovely (and warm) place. I love that last sign!


I love the photos, I could even feel the warmth of the sunshine. Oh wait the heat is from my laptop.


So you're a Snowbird! Lucky you. Have an enjoyable trip home.


What a great idea for a post. I enjoyed seeing the different places and ways people live in this beautiful region.


Lovely images! Thanks for your comment.


Loving all those colors, especially the pink stairs! Can't wait to see pics of the cottage reno when you're done.


So bright and summery! Love them. ☺


Lovely houses and so exotic pelican to me :)

That does look like such a terrific place to spend time -- particularly during the winter!! I do love your captures for the day, Sallie! Hope you have a lovely week!!


Love the colourful houses. :-)

That's certainly very interesting to see all these different architectural styles !


Great mosaics! So many choices of where to live. I'd prefer to live in that little brown place on the water!


Wonderful photos! It reminds me of our vacation in Florida years ago, and I loved the humor in the last shot. Have a great week :)


lovely riverside photos, I love the last one

The birds also enjoy a sunny day.

Looks like a beautiful place. I've got to get down there and visit. At least to see the burrowing owls near there.


There is a large variety of houses there and in Florida. Hubby, his cousin and I visited some the first couple of days of vacation. We were quite taken with the city of Venice. Love the mosaic, have a happy week!


All the photos are fascinating-but I love the last sign!(By the way, I woke up very early, and put the central heating on!It's about 3c in the UK Midlands).

Lavender Cottage

A nice place to winter and many colourful places that look cute.


I love the variety of housing found there. It's all very colorful! Thanks for visiting my blog. Enjoy the week.


love that! 'boat-by'. :) some of those places are VERY colorful.

Looks like a marvellous place to spend the winter. Good luck with the renos.


This looks like such wonderful fun. I love the spots of color. Great shots and I love the sign!
