Day 292 Underwater Adventure-Dive and Snorkel --Lauderdale- By- the -Sea

I am more of a land dweller enjoying the ocean from my comfy chair on the beach.  The mystery of the underwater ocean world with its’ burst of color from the variety of fish and coral carries some intrigue.    My intrigue however, has only led me to stand safely on the ground peering into an aquarium. During my recent venture to the quaint area of  Lauderdale- by- the -Sea  (see Days - 289, 290),  I thought that it was time to “dive in” to an underwater adventure of this area’s off coast  coral  reefs  and a nearby ship wreck (SS Copenhagen) .

Day 291- Pittsburgh CLO Brigadoon- A Classic Musical with A Ballet/Opera Flair - Find Love, Find Paradise

Brigadoon is a classic musical about two American gentlemen on vacation in Scotland who discover a mythical Scottish village that appears only for a day every 100 years!  During their exploration, Tommy finds love but love in this mysterious world has a price. I remember watching the movie Briagdoon as a child  and being mesmerized by Gene Kelly’s dancing and the dreamlike scenes of  the Scottish Highlands.  This CLO production should be an adventurous tale of dance and song about finding love and finding paradise.

Day 290 A Florida Off Season Summer Excursion-Lauderdale by the Sea (LBTS)/Perfect Mature Playground

You would think that a southern Florida vacation would be unbearable making you feel like a dripping candle in the sun.  My recent  discovery  of  a quaint area to relax, Lauderdale by the Sea, and a  boutique hotel located  on the beach, The Plunge Beach Hotel, changed my perspective. LBTS, just 7 miles north of Fort Lauderdale, is a perfect mature playground where you can relax, eat well, and  snorkel or dive on it’s off  shore coral reefs  and a  nearby ship wreck (SS Copenhagen). The town square invites you to rest in a rainbow colored Adirondack chair and is lined with charming restaurants that do not disappoint the taste buds. Everything in this playground is within walking distance in a 2.5 mile stretch!
