As you may be aware I have spent the last couple of decades in the Florida Real Estate market.  Wherever I travel I am always looking at different homes. While we were in Boca Raton celebrating the 4th of July holiday, I had the oportunity to attend an open house with my son and daugher-in-law. It was waterfront property located on the canal between Boca Raton and Deerfield Beach. That got me quickly into the real estate mode. I love looking at many the different styles of architecture. So,when we chartered a boat to take a cruise in the Intracoastal from Boca Raton to Lighthouse Point, I was camera ready. 

I have posted a variety of homes that I thought were interesting and you can travel along with via video if you like. Later in the post I have a picture of Florida’s most expensive home. Le Palais Royal – $139-million.

This was our boat for the day.

We packed our lunch and swim wear.

The Captain and his crew took care of the rest.

Spanish styled homes with tile roofs are very popular in Florida.

Old Florida style housing is still around but is disappearing fast.

What would a house on the water be without a boat?

You can see the high rise condos on the Atlantic behind these homes.

The side canal off the Intracoastal offers a different view.

There is a sand bar right smack in the middle of Lake Boca.

Our Captain dropped anchor for us to take a cooling swim before returning home.
