Fort Lauderdale by Boat

After we had done the coach tour around Fort Lauderdale we got on the Carrie B and saw the beautiful houses on the intra coastal waterway. We were told which houses belonged to who, but there were so many that it was impossible to remember.



This yellow house and the following three photos of it belongs to an ex owner of the Miami Dolphins.

The handrail of the pagoda is painted with gold leaf. There is a hot tub on the middle floor.

There is a statue of dolphins immediately on the left of the bushes to show his connection with the Miami Dolphins.




This yacht belongs to Paul Allen who founded Microsoft with Bill Gates. He also owns Octopus which is the worlds largest privately owned yacht.





With all these huge and immensely expensive houses, we never saw a single person on the properties apart from gardeners. What a waste! I would love to enjoy sitting out in the good weather and enjoying my surroundings.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Great property and nobody at home to enjoy it. Wonderful pics, though!

Beautiful houses, indeed. Bet everyone is working so much so they can afford their houses that they never get to enjoy them.

Gheez. These pictures are beautiful. My hubby and I are both enjoying your new vacation-pictures blog! (I LOVE Eric & Flynn, too, and enjoy the weather observation box on their site as well!) p.s. You don't need to mail me a Christmas card this year-- I really enjoyed bragging about getting one from you last year, and honored to be on your list, but that's enough now! THANKS!!

Oh my goodness what gorgeous photos of sunsets. Ft. Lauderdale is beautiful. I've never seen if via a boat. Did you get a nice tan while on our East Coast?

Great pics. Those homes were absolutely beautiful.

Imagine all of that beauty but working so hard there is no time to enjoy it. We'll settle for a lot less, forgo the gold rails, for time to enjoy life. Mum says she thinks she wouldn't even go indoors!

Thanks for showing us those beautiful houses, no people though and we didn't see any kitties either!
