Just Add Water

Just add water and I’m a happy girl~

So I was easily entertained at A & B Marina  in Key West, admiring the boats. . .

Where the perfect union of sunshine. .  .

. . .and water guarantees a jolly time~

And a fun holiday~

  Take a Leisure Lee stroll & gaze at the sport fishing yachts~

Stopping to smell the roses onboard this vessel. . .


Watching fishermen of all varieties. . .

 Noting the various home ports. . .

While watching people & their pooches provides cheap entertainment. . .

And hoping for boating weather at home soon~

Thanks for your visit, I’m joining:

    Oh, you’re making me want to go BACK right now!! Cool names for the boats.
    We had friends whose last name was “Sauer”. I suggested they name their boat “Sweet & Sauer”. At first he didn’t like it, but they ended up using the name. LOL She WAS the sweeter of the two.

    Looks like you had a great time on the water. I’m surprised you’re area isn’t warmer yet but then we’ve got FROST again this morning. Sheesh…give it up, Ol’ Man Winter!!!!

    Hi, Mary! I’m not what anyone would think of as an “ourdoorsy” kind of girl, but there’s something about a boat! I always like to look at what the boats are named. My friends -avid boaters themselves- tell me it’s all in the name. For me it’s all about what’s on board in the way of luxury accommodations, food and libations! :-) I like that one boat above named “Hope Floats”. Did you ever see that movie with Sandra Bullock and sexy Harry Connick, Jr.? One of my favorites. Great pictures!

    Nice post and reminds me that warmer days are ahead. I love all the names on the boats, what fun looking at them all. Great photos and mosaic.

    nothing like water to plant a permanent smile~

    Beautiful photos! I can’t wait until all the boats are back in the marinas here on Lake Michigan. It is fun to see what people name their boats!

    I always enjoy reading the imaginative names that people give their boats! I am looking forward to sailing days!

    I have such fond memories of holidays in Key West in the 70’s. It was a very sleepy place then – still pretty small-town in many ways. I’d love to go back, and your photos make me want it even more!

    What a paradise!

    I love to walk around and drool over boats when we’re at a marina. Lovely.

    Something about boats, especially sailboats is really cool.

  16. April 6, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Oh what a beautiful post of beautiful boats and scenery. I’d love to be on vacation there now. Did Mr. Z have any fish tales of the one that got away? Enjoy your day!
    Blessings & Aloha!

    I’m drifting away with all those cool photos!

    I’m with you about the water.

    I lived in South Florida for many years and love the Keys. When I lived there, I had a boat and we spent many weekends in Isleamarada fishing with our boys.

    I get most of my “ocean fix” in Oregon now, but every few years I have to do a Keys trip for old times sake.

    I loved scanning your wonderful pictures and taking in the unique boat names.

  24. April 6, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    O.k., o.k.!! I live in the desert! But we LOVE the water, and if we ever have to leave Tucson, it will be for the southeastern coast!!!

  25. April 6, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    I live far from desert or water, but love seeing lake, pond, sea images.

    beautiful post.

    I love the sea and you are so lucky to have a boat ! What fun !

  27. April 7, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    Love the “Hope Floats” name.

    Looks idyllic – particularly from my snow covered vantage point…when do we sail?

  29. April 7, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    It’s always fun to roam around docks, isn’t it. You found some interesting vessels, I see.

  30. April 8, 2011 at 12:11 am

    I live beside the river in Central Florida, but Key West is just gorgous! Wow! Yes there is something about a boat!~Ames

    Okay, I seriously need a vacation. I was enchanted with that photo of the buoys. I can see that as a watercolor painting.

    Thanks for a charming ending to a wonderful round of Alphabe-Thursday!

    I really enjoyed reading your posts over the past 26 weeks!
