SUMMER IN FORT LAUDERDALE PART 2   Leave a comment

Summertime is ‘frivioulous’ time in Fort La-Dee-actually every time is but that’s another blog! 1) And I love the heat and humidity!

9) In the middle of July we had the touring company of “Mamma Mia” and there is always a pre-show in the lobby! It seems like the show tour comes every year and we will be seeing it again during this coming theatre season Go to a performance of “Mamma Mia” at the multi-million dollar Broward Performing Arts Center and there is a karaoke machine set up in the middle of the lobby and the guy, who wears a lampshade as a hat at parties, throws on a boa and thinks he is ABBA–all 4 members!

5-7) Restaurants have their crazy signs in restrooms, especially the last one–think they are trying to tell Fort Liquerdale men something? Heck it is hot outside and the restaurant bathrooms are cool, with reading material!

8) Wherever you go you will find a gecko sunning themselves and we have some really great and/or weird ones with spiral tails. One of these days I will get pictures of them!

2) The waters of Karen Bay surround our residence and there is a continuous flow of yachts, sailboats, dinner boats, people in canoes, kayaks, rowboats and catamarans not to mention water jet packers making like James Bond and, of course, paddlers.

3 & 4) Not too far from where I live is Holiday Park where they have the War Memorial auditorium presenting all sorts of events like muscle builders–male and female– contests, gun shows, antique shows and concerts. Also there is the Parker Playhouse which I have written about before. There are all kinds of flowers in bloom  and many different playing fields but the park is probably most famous for the Chris Evett tennis center run by her father. http://www.fortlauderdale.gov/tennis/jetc.htm  and rain (it’s our rainy season) or shine (hey it is Fort Lauderdale) bless the young–2 pm in the afternoon and temps in the mid 90s and they are out there playing tennis!
