As promised, here are the pics of the groovy hippie-esque art community found in Matlacha, (Mat-Luh-Shay) Florida...I could SOooo live there!
THIS was my favorite place...Leoma Lovegrove's Gallery and Garden...a true blast from the FAB 60's!
Another great gallery: The Wild Child! I LOVED it!
The Matlacha Menagerie:
This is my friend Meleah...sitting in front of the other end of the Menagerie...
This is the shoe shop...note the shoes on the roof! What fun!
This Fisherman's Diner was our choice for lunch...unfortunately, it was open only for dinner. :-(
And HERE is the house I found that I wanted to buy, move into and become a full time resident of Matlacha:
Isn't it wonderful? The gingerbread, hand painted tiles and quaint picket fence just KILL me! I actually got the number of the realty company that's selling it...I'm going to call just for grins and see if it's even in the realm of possibility.
The house is only a few hundred yards from this:
An artistic, tropical, hippie like community...I'd fit right in, don't you think?
Hugs and tropical kisses,
