every time we walk along our most-fun-small-town's atlantic avenue, we pass a little booth and two docked yachts as we cross over the intercoastal. and every time, without fail, i walk up to that little booth and chuckle at the sign touting "local gossip". you and i both know i've been dying to hear that gossip since i moved down five(!) months ago. so saturday, extra enticed by the discovery of an online coupon, we boarded the taller of the two yachts (three stories, ya'll!), ordered a couple coronas, and settled in on some rooftop chairs for our two-hour sail. we saw some mind blowing mansions on the water, clomped up and down the stairs to each deck just because we could, and learned quite a bit of delray trivia! did you know: you can order tabbouleh and pita chips to enjoy with your coronas while aboard? i was pleasantly surprised myself! did you know: the intercoastal waterway runs from new jersey to miami? i certainly did not! and not to be a gossip, but DID YOU KNOW: the king of queens himself, mr. kevin james, just purchased a $18.5 million home on my very own beach? you didn't hear it from me. (but paul blart, mall cop... if your google alert brought you to this fine blog, mark and i would love to take you out for a drink. we need friends under 75.) needless to say, the sightseeing cruise gets my tourist stamp of approval; boats forever!
