After checking out the new Slidell fishing pier Saturday morning, Ken and I decided to drive about two minutes further to check out the new Lake Shore Marina in Slidell that we'd been hearing about. This marina is right across the interstate from our subdivision, and therefore just minutes away from our house.
We drove to the construction site, and were glad to see that we could walk around. We were really excited to see the new marina, with its palm trees, iron fencing and floating docks. This marina is located in a very upscale area (we're on the other side .. LOL) and we imagined how nice this facility is going to be once it's finished. We don't know the real figures yet, but we've been told that the marina is going to be very reasonable ... we hope so!
The marina was expected to be finished by now, but it still has some work to be done before it's open. However, it should be complete by the time we sell our home. This would be a great place to live on Nirvana while making our final cruising preparations! I wonder if they're going to have a pool?!

Really nice area ... we guess these round structures are planters for more palms!
Some folks fishing, and the really nice homes that surround the new marina
As I mentioned on our Facebook page ... Ken is finally able to start working on our house! We have waited a long time to get to this point, as we've had a lot of obstacles get in our way during the past year or two. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the next 5-6 weeks go well, and that we'll have a "For Sale" sign in our front yard soon. Seeing this marina really gets us anxious to get our house on the market!
Hasta luego ... until then. Mid-Life Cruising!
