More On Cruising The Caloosahatchee!




“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” 
~Thomas MertonNo Man Is an Island~

There it was right in the middle of the Caloosahatchee, this little gem that captured the attention of everyone aboard our vessel. We all fantasized about habitation, even though there was no room to build a house or much of anything else. Adorned with a grass hut, a few chairs and a dock to tie one's boat was about all that this small piece of heaven had to offer. Yet it seemed in that small fraction of time all that one really needed to reside in paradise. 
To lose oneself in time and dream a little dream while inhaling the fresh air and all that Mother Nature had bestowed upon us that day was truly intoxicating. 
Passing by we noticed that this little piece of nirvana was for sale. My guess would be that it is far beyond our means and I will just keep on dreaming that little dream! Last time I checked dreaming is for free, but beautiful memories are forever priceless! My instrument of capture helps me to hold those memories true! 

Pin It!

What a beautiful place. But it looks like it's only accessible by boat. Don't know if I could deal with that, bit it IS nice to dream. :)

I might get a little bored on an island that small. But it's beauty can't be denied.

this is so beautiful and at the same time curious. I find myself wondering many things - how does the owner use this property, how much time do they spend there, and how much does it cost??? just wondering. these are excellent photos that elicit wonder and amazement, and yeah, dreams too. happy week to you Rosemary.

I would find myself enjoying living in that small hut temporarily, away from the metro's hustle and bustle. I'd love to reconnect with nature and with myself as well.

Ms Rosemary, your short but provocative entry is nothing but brilliant! :)
