Fort Lauderdale Boat Show..

It's not the ship so much as the skillful sailing
that assures the prosperous voyage...

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the "Yachting Capital of the World" will host the 54th 
Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show on October 31-Nov 4, 2013. Show exhibits 
range from yacht builders and designers to exotic cars and brokerage yachts. 

The boat show opened up yesterday to lots of rain in the morning.
Did not seem like the best way to start, but in less than an 
hour the skies where clear and blue again.  Seems like
this year, unlike last year the rain might just stay away.

A wide variety of boats and sea vessels will be on display including runabouts, 
sport fishers, high performance boats, center consoles, cabin cruisers, flats boats,
 skiffs, express cruisers, sailing yachts, motor yachts, bow riders, catamarans, ski boats, 
jet boats, trawlers, inflatables, canoes, and extraordinary super yachts. 

Covering six locations and over 3 million square feet of space, the show's transportation
 network of bus shuttles,  water taxis, and riverboats ensures attendees can easily
 navigate the boat show and its expansive waterways system.

Arvid and I usually go to the boat show because it's fun and interesting
to see all the gorgeous boats and cool stuff on display.  this year however,
I don't think we will be going.  Though it's great, like everything if you've
seen it a few times, then you've seen it enough.  Now for boat people this 
is what they have been looking forward to all year long.

If you wish to have a day filled with sunshine and to see mega luxury yachts,
then you have to go.  There is usually live music in the afternoons, food and 
many bars serving all sorts of drinks.  It makes for a very good outing.

It's Friday so let's get the weekend started right!
Yes, I'm happy.

Happiness is when you feel good about yourself
without feeling the need for anyone else's approval...
