Happy New Year!! (again)

Smooth Waters on the Caloosahatchee River (aka Fort Myers water front)

Ok so I’m a day late in my greeting – it’s still a new year, right?  And what a great time we’ve had in Ft. Myers…staying on our boat or at least in the marina while the land-based party goers had a great time!  We had a wonderful time with Scott & Karen on DunRunnin – a true looper dinner of combining foods from each boat resulting in a feast fit for…well, us!

Then we played a card game named Garbage which was great because it required no skill or score keeping!  Charlie won, of course!!  And by the stroke of 9:30 we were back onboard The Lower Place ready for bed.  I of course stayed up to see the fireworks from the fly bridge – nothing better than bringing in the New Year just steps from your own pillow!!

New Year’s Day I had a great walk downtown – early.  It was so peaceful and surprisingly clean – no evidence of a big party! And we just had a quiet day at the marina for the most part.  Friday 1/1/2021 we were invited to join Ben & Chantale on At Ease for a dinner and then walk the Edison Ford grounds to tour the Festival of Lights.  

The Children's Walking trail was fun for us too

So much work & very much appreciated

Mask required - even when fixing a sock wrinkle!

And there's danger wherever you go...

WOW!!  The displays were beautiful, creative and original.  We were so happy to see everything and it was a gorgeous night for a walking tour…light breeze and 72°!

Of course, there’s ALWAYS a boat chore but most importantly is the weather!  WOW!!!  Windy and 85° - I walked to Publix and really thought about what I was buying because I had to walk back with my purchase!  A mile can get long if you buy too many things.  No problem…

The week is shaping up to be busy with visitors so I hope to remember to get a few pictures.  But more importantly, I want to take time to be in the moment.  Lessons learned in 2020 should be applied to 2021, don’t you think??  Embrace your weekend!!
