I'm so sorry I didn't take any photos the other evening. I belong to a group called Women's Executive Club. Among other things, we meet once a month at a member's home for a social. This month I was co-hosting the social with Vivien, the owner of Blue Water Books and Charts. I told people they could visit Vivien's AND my home ... no, we don't live together! Jim and I drove our motorhome over to Vivien's home and parked in her driveway for the evening. It was great. I so enjoyed having these women, some of whom I've known for many years, see my new lifestyle. The reactions were interesting - from "You've got to be kidding, there's no way my husband and I could co-exist in here!" to "Oh! you're really sparking my wanderlust ... I would so love to do this!" Whatever the reaction, I know that I LOVE it. All I could talk about with these women I 've known for 20 years is how lucky I am to have found a partner who loves the same things as I do. Jim drove the RV there and was happy to give tours to all who stopped in! So cool! And, of course, the views we had while parked at Vivien's home were pretty spectacular. The waterways of Fort Lauderdale's Rio Vista Isles. Just a few blocks from where I lived when I was in Jr. High.
