Talents Afloat

Boot Key Harbor, Marathon, Florida

I've written that cruisers are more healthy than the average person, are they also more artistically talented too?   I don't have the answer to that question.  Here in the harbor we have handy people like Alex, and musical people like Cory.  Actually, we have lots of musical people here.  They get hired by the local restaurants to provide live entertainment.  Then we have Libby, Sandra, Sharon, and Patty, the pine needle basket queens of Marathon.  Painters too seem to be everywhere here.  Even some of the homeless people who live in the mangroves make some beautiful art.

An exceptional talent that we met cruising is Alexandre Lemieux.  He is a young man from Quebec.   We know Alexadre's parents and we heard him sing on the boat.   Wonderful.  He composes his own music.

Now we heard that he won first prize at Prix de Vox Aeterna (The voice of the Eternal prix). Congratulations Alexandre.


Here is a youtube video of Alexandre singing.  Who cares if it in French, it's great music.
