  • Description


    John and I both work in the marine industry. He is a captain and I am a chef. We have been working on yachts for 15years and travelled the world on boats!
    We have very peaceful private yard with 2 cats and 1 very friendly dog!

    We are trying our hand out at fostering puppies and finding homes for them!

    I have recently purchased my house and bungalow behind it.
    My project is about restoring a 100 +year old house and also moving towards being more energy efficient
    I am really into reinvent/ reuse / recycle / repurpose !!!
    I like to take old objects or unusual objects and repurpose them.

    John may or may not be at the house depending on where the boat is and where it’s heading.

    Fort Lauderdale is a great historic beach town, rich in history, frozen drinks, beaches!!! Public transportation is Uber and electric bikes so it is very easy as long as you have a credit card. No debit card
    You can walk easily

    Our home is walking distance to a small non traditional local restaurant and bar that works on the honor system. It is a great place to meet new people, as people gather around the outdoor picnic tables and sit together.
    Also our home and the canals and surrounding homes are gorgeous with huge tropical plants !
