I once figured out that before I moved here to Gateway in 1999 I never lived in one place for more than 5 years except, possibly, in my younger years though I remember we lived in 3 different places the first 16 years of my life. When I first moved here I lived in the F building for 5 years and then in February 2004 I moved into this apartment and I have been here going on 18 years.
I could sit here looking out my windows (#s 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11) facing east, south and north with the scene constantly changing with yachts, catamarans, canoes, jet skis, kyaks not to forget Mother Nature doing her job for life.
Right now she is sprinkling those April showers that bring May flowers but if you look at picture #1 the week will be providing sunny, warm afternoons and cool (low 70s are cool in South Florida!) evenings.
Okay, once in a while you have to get out which is what the JMarks restaurant sign (# 7) is all about as we went for lunch on Thursday. I usually have their steak but because of teeth problems--let's NOT go there!--I decided on a dish I haven't had in a long time which is Mussels on Linguini. It was good but I would have preferred it being made in a garlic and white wine sauce.
Mother Nature, food and me--no complaints from Gateway in Fort Lauderdale!
