Our Little Piece of Paradise
Florida is Nice: Palm Trees, Sunny, Hot.
Here is the front of our house. We live on a quiet dead end street; it's very private and peaceful.
This is the entry (looking at the front door), to the right is the laundry room.
Turning to the left, we are looking into the kitchen.
And another turn to the left, we are looking into the living room.
Our Christmas Tree! Which is the only reminder that it is in fact "winter" and Christmas Time. Even with the tree I still keep forgetting that it's Christmas. Feels like July.
Through the living room, into another nice area for sitting, and where we've set up the computer.
Out to the porch, or as Floridians call it, a "lanai". I sat out here for awhile and suddenly realized this table and chair set is almost identical to the one on my parent's porch where we've had countless dinners on summer nights.
Here we are outside the porch, looking down to the dock. We'll come back to that later.
To the right is the grill; where is George off to? Let's go see...
Aha! The Captain's Lounge! (so designated by the sign on the wall, including a "Mermaid's Only" sidenote) George is comfy in his hammock, with the sunset behind. This is where I spend my mornings in the most comfortable lounge chair ever, with coffee and my new Kindle that Santa delivered early!
Looking back at the house from the Captain's Lounge. "Hi!"
Looking down at the dock from the Captain's Lounge. Let's go there next.
On the dock looking up at the Captain's Lounge. Wave to George in the hammock!
Looking back down the dock. A very nice place to watch the sunset, though we only did it on the first night. I saw an enormous rat skitter down the steps and under the dock... sooo... haven't been back for another sunset.
So I guess that's it... More Tomorrow!!!!!!!
