Hey there! I’m Bluwatergal ~ thanks for visiting bluwaterlife.com 🙂
I grew up in Florida, South Carolina and Georgia ~ when the Busted Flush was a fixture at Bahia Mar, when the Wingo’s were becoming poets in the Lowcountry, and when Buffett was first singing in local bars.
After growing up with the beach and the lake, I spent a lot of my adult life seeking out deep blue water. First there was a trip to Tortola, BVI ~ then a truly memorable birthday in Key West ~ and eventually boats, bars and beaches throughout the Caribbean and the Florida Keys.
On the water, under the water, or near the water. Salt or fresh ~ ocean, lake or shore ~ crashing or calm. It all helps to clear my head and bring a different perspective ~ and peace of mind. Over the years I’ve tried to capture that getaway feeling, when a real trip to the water is only wishful thinking. I called it my blue water life. The one I enjoy sharing with people. The air is lighter, the food and drink better ~ there is love and laughter to share. I have a backlog of stories, photos, fun, food, drink, and island style. Inveterate list maker, note taker, tear sheet saver that I am, the mix keeps evolving.
We were driving home after a beach escape to Seaside, FL in August 2009. I was thinking about wine and cheese at sunset, fun beach style, beautiful white sand and blue water ~ and how to once again extend my happy and relaxed blue water headset for at least an extra hour after getting home. Driving and thinking about life enjoyed ~ fun, food, drinks, style, special people ~ the idea for bluwaterlife was born. Thanks to Bluwaterguy & an iPhone, we were able to check availability and then purchase the domain name bluwaterlife.com ~ from idea to reality in the space of 10 miles on I-85.
I’ve been blogging here about life enjoyed for five years now, and have met lots of new friends along the way. I hope you enjoy your visit and will come along for the journey. Do you have your own blue water moment or memory to share? Love to hear from you!
Hope you enjoy the scenery ~~~
