Why do we invite catastrophe, part 4

 We have one of the world's greatest seaports here. Port Everglades is home to a thriving cruise ship industry, a growing cargo business and it is also has one of the largest petroleum storage and distribution centers as well. (Ummm nooo ... that last bit of trivia does not help us out much at the gas pump these days, unless you compare us to California or something.)    

                                        

  

    

    

     Anyway ... I took these photos last weekend, it's nice to be reminded that despite this port's big business, environmental issues are taken into consideration here, the place is kept pretty clean and with the number of tourist in and out of here they seem to take aesthetics into consideration as well.

     Comparatively speaking ... we have a pretty port!

 BTW ... my choice for J-link of the day is called Highly Unofficial Guide to the ViVis, you'll find it at Stephen's Sometimes Photo Blog. Stephen is one of this communities most important behind the scene members, if you don't read him regularly, you should. Like John and now Joe ... Stephen is always a wealth of very valuable information here in J-Land.

                                               Have a great weekend all

Having gone on around 10 cruises, I have taken advantage of Port Everglades many times! It's very pretty there, and I hope to return within the year...

I came into a house yesterday for the first time since the storm. I did a lot of growing up here. THere isn't much left of the house at all. just the upstairs mostly. My old friend's mom was sitting in her bedroom sifing through 3 inches of sand trying to find her wedding rings. As I came in to try to comfort her, she saw me swallowing and sniffing. She put her wine glass down , glared at me over her glasses and said, "Good God, Marti, it's just a damn house!
Maybe attitudes like this are why we stay!
